Why do leaves change colour in autumn? What a variety of tree leaves! Can you recognise different leaves? After having collected the most beautiful leaves, we are going to learn to compose and make wonderful blossoms of flowers so that, when the winter comes, we will be able to enjoy the memories of a golden autumn…
