Story Hour includes nature walk

By Librarian Mary Boutwell

Maben Public Library

 

Sept. 27 was an adventurous time at the Maben Public Library’s Story Hour.

We went on a nature walk to find leaves. Our story was a science reader titled “Colorful Leaves.” We learned about the different shapes, kinds and color of leaves. We talked about the seasons and what happens to the leaves when the weather changes and the chlorophyll goes away.

On our walk, we found leaves that we brought inside and made a nature collage and also did leaf rubbings that turned out very pretty with all the different colors and shapes of the leaves. We then played with Play-Doh and made leaf prints in the Play-Doh.

Come join us each week as we learn more about the world in which we live!
