Colours in Living Things
In class we watched some videos about why things are the colours they are. We learned about flamingos and other pink animals, and about leaves of trees. We will also be learning about how pumpkins get their colour. See some of the links to videos below to refresh your memory or watch for the first time if you were away. We really enjoyed learning about different leaf shapes and types of trees, and doing leaf rubbings to create trees on our bulletin board.
