251. Create a conversation between two leaves that are about to fall from a tree. One is scared and the other is excited about the long trip to the ground. What do they talk about and why?

252. As it gets cooler outside, it's important to bundle up, but not as much as winter. How does your fall clothing differ from your winter clothing? How would you feel if you wore as much clothing as in the wintertime all throughout the fall and why?

253. What are some animals and plants you're more likely to see during the fall? If you could hide among them for an entire day, what kind of things do you think you'd see and why?

254. What might an animal think of all the brightly colored trees and fallen leaves during the fall? Would the animal be confused? Scared? Describe the animal's thought process during the seasonal transition.

255. What are some of the smells during fall that make it different from the other three seasons? How do those smells make you feel and why? If someone created a perfume that smelled like fall, would it be the same as smelling it naturally? Why or why not?

256. Imagine that your skin changed color like the leaves during the fall season. Looking through your classroom you'd see people in shades of yellow, red and purple. How would this change your day-to-day life? How would it make you feel and why?

257. Your parents have told you that if you collect 100 acorns and pinecones, they'll award you with a special prize. How do you go about collecting these natural items? Who would you take with you to help? Are you successful? Why or why not?

258. You have been transported several hundred years into the past when your town was nearly all farmland. What kind of crops might you see in the area? How would your fall season change if it was consumed by harvest time? Why?

259. You have been hired by a magical farmer who grows plants that produce Halloween candy. Every day you must put all of the candy into a bucket except for one piece. Do you think you'd be able to hold yourself to just one? Why or why not?

260. One of the most important fall vegetables is corn because so many different products are made from corn. What items might you have to do without if there was a worldwide corn shortage? How do you think we can stop such a shortage from happening and why?
