Fall Bulletin Board

"Unbe-LEAF-able Poetry!"

Directions: One week before, have students collect soft leaves of varying colors.  Keep them moist in a ziploc bag until you are ready to create the bulletin board. Next, have students create poems about fall or leaves which will be written on large leaves made of construction paper. Have students outline the construction paper leaves with fall-colored glitter such as red, copper, brown, orange, etc. Create a large tree trunk out of brown paper and add to a blue/green bulletin board paper. (Blue sky and green grass). Take the real leaves and start stapling them above the trunk to make a tree.  Overlap leaves to create realistic look. Add students' poems to the board and add the title above, emphasizing the word LEAF.
