On last week’s cold, blustery, and rainy Friday third grade nature studies collected leafs, and dipped them into hot beeswax (carefully of course). Waxed leafs make a wonderful fall decoration.
The wax makes the colors, and structures on the leafs pop, and inspired the children to go look for the most beautiful, interesting, unique leafs.
It was a good lesson about the beauty of nature.
