It is autumn time! I love watching the passing seasons, and fall is no exception: I love the day by day changes on the maple tree in the back yard, and the cool breezes are refreshing. I know I say it at the start each season, but I love this time of year! It is always fun to bring the season in to our learning themes for our homeschool. Below are 20 great learning activities, printables, and games for lower elementary aged kids. I hope you find just what you’re looking for!
