Fall science activities are some of the best because they are simple to put together and loads of fun for children!
I love that nature provides the perfect materials for these: leaves, acorns, pumpkins, apples, and more! These fall science experiments and activities are perfect for fall science lesson plans, leaf experiments for preschoolers, and nature studies. If you ever need ideas for setting up a classroom science area for fall, here are some of my favorite fall science ideas to include.
