Fall in Michigan

Our BookQuest continues as we investigate the beautiful FALL season. We would like to share with you some of our pictures of what fall looks like in Michigan, USA. Many of these pictures were taken by our 3rd grade student photographers. You can see the changes that happen to our plants during this time of year. You may also notice the clothing that is being worn to get an idea of our current temperatures. 


 Our student photographers are Cameron, Kayla, Trisha, Bryce, Noah, William, Jenna, and Evelina. They learned the proper way to use a digital camera and how to download the images to the computer. These photographers did a fabulous job with the photos!

I would also like to share with you the slideshow that Miss Jordan created for 2KJ’s blog. It is about their current season of spring. Please watch and read their presentation. Then make some connections by comparing and contrasting the images from our slideshows.

  1. Dear Mrs Moore and the Techie Kids,

    I really enjoyed this post, it is so great to learn about other parts of the world through blogging! 🙂

    I particularly liked seeing a little bit of Michigan and what it looks like. Seeing the big park with the surrounding houses looked quite “American” to me, if that makes sense! The big houses without the front fences is what I imagine parts of America to look like. I probably have that impression from TV!

    I have been to New York and L.A (three years ago) and it was Fall (or Autumn, as we call it). The weather was perfect for a holiday, not too hot and not too cold. I remember at Disneyland they had Fall decorations on display.

    I like Autumn because it is when I celebrate my birthday! 🙂

    Great post!

    Your friend,
    Miss Jordan

  2. Dear Mrs Moore,

    WOW! This is a really good post!
    I really like the post because it has beautiful pictures and I really like the infomation.

    Instead of me saying fall I say autumn (in Australia).
    The trees that you took a photo of are orange or yellow Australias trees are stil green or our trees have brown leaves.

    Some activities that I like to do in fall/autumn are:

    jumping in the piles of leaves, having a hot chocolate inside and playing with my brothers outside after school (Blake and Lachlan).

    My birthday is in winter it is not in autumn.
    I have three questions for you…

    When is your birthday?
    Do you know any types of trees?
    How many trees do you have in your backyard and frontyard altogether?

    Jazmin (in 2KJ)!

  3. Dear Mrs Moore,

    Wow great post! 🙂
    Great job at photographing Cameron, Kayla, Trisha, bryce, Noah, William, Jenna, and Evelina.

    The photo of the Autum (fall)it made me feel like I was there.
    Here is an activites I like to do in Autumn:

    Jump in a pile of leaves.
    Here is a question for you:

    How many students are skyping with us?
    From your blogging buddy,


  4. Dear Mrs Moore and Techie Kids,

    Wow! This post about fall (or autumn) is great! I love fall because all the pretty coloured leaves fall of trees. I especially love it because it is the season of my birthday.

    I have never heard of Phlook before. I might try to use Phlook for one of my posts I do on my blog.

    Now it is fall for you in America, it is spring here in Australia. Our nature looks different to yours now. Our nature is starting to grow beautiful green leaves on trees and some parts are growing colourful flowers.

    In fall I usually jump in the fallen leaves that have fell off trees.

    What season is your birthday in?

    Talk soon,

  5. Dear Mrs Moore,

    The photos look alot alike in autumn/fall in Australia. ♥

    In autumn in Australia there are lots of blossoms. ★
    In Michigan you have lots more leaves.

    Do you have lots of blossoms?

    From Leah.

  6. Dear Miss Jordan,

    Thank you for the kind words! I agree, I’m having so much fun learning through blogging. The big park that you see is our school’s playground. We were outside at recess time. You were also seeing the backs of houses that border the school grounds. Most houses don’t have front fences, but many do have their back yards fenced in. What kind of fences can be found around the homes where you live?

    Autumn weather is very nice here. I have been to many of the states, but I have not yet traveled to New York and California. I have visited Disney World in Florida, but not Disneyland. I remember reading about your birthday back during our spring! 🙂

    Hello Jazmin,

    Thank you for the compliment! I’m glad you enjoyed the post and pictures. We also say autumn here in Michigan, but most of the time we do say fall. 🙂

    Thanks for making all of the great connections! Our students enjoy jumping in the leaves and playing outside, too. The students took a survey to find out all of their favorite fall activities. We will share the results with you when we Skype. Maybe after we talk, we can post a couple of polls for your class to take and then we can compare our results. Do you think that is a good idea?

    My birthday is in the summer during the month of July. It is always nice and hot and I can enjoy a meal outside. I like your question about types of trees. There are a couple of trees in our neighborhood that I think are very beautiful. They are called pear trees. These trees have a rounded appearance to the branches. In the spring, they are one of the first plants to bloom. The tree is covered with small white flowers and little green leaves. They are full and green during the summer. I am noticing now that they are one of the few trees whose leaves have not fallen off yet. They just changed to a very beautiful yellow shade. I think I’d like to plant one of these trees near my house. There are many different styles and sizes of houses here in Michigan. My house is a small, but tall house. We have 2 trees in our front yard. One tree will grow very big, but it is still young. In our back yard we have 5 trees. 3 of them are evergreens. They will not lose their leaves. They have green “needles” that stay on the tree even in the winter. So, that is 7 trees altogether.

    Dear Emily,

    Thank you for being so encouraging! The photographers were very excited that you liked their pictures!

    I’m so glad we were able to share a little bit of Michigan with you! Our students also enjoy jumping in a pile of leaves. So far, there are 32 students who will be able to return to school to Skype with your class. 🙂 We can’t wait!

    Dear Leah,

    Thank you for your super comment! It is fun to hear that our areas look similar during the same season. We have some trees that blossom in the spring, but many that just have leaves. Some of the blossoming plants that we have are the weeping cherry tree and lilac shrubs. The weeping cherry tree has beautiful small pink flowers. The lilac flowers are large clusters of tiny purple flowers. They are very pretty and smell wonderful!

    Thanks for all of your fabulous comments!

    Your blogging buddy,
    Mrs. Moore 🙂

  7. Dear Millie,

    Thanks for the awesome comment! I agree. The pretty colored leaves are fun to watch fall off the trees. I’m glad we shared a new resource for you to try. Phlook has an interactive feature that I haven’t tried before. If you try it, can you give me some suggestions for how we could use the features?

    I think it is very fun that we are experiencing the opposite seasons right now. My birthday is in the summer during July. I wonder what temperatures you will have in Australia on my birthday… 🙂

    Your friend,
    Mrs. Moore

  8. Can I just say, I love this blogging stuff…this is the first time I’ve ever done it! Keep up the great work Techie Kids.

  9. Dear Mrs Moore,

    In the fall I like to rake the leaves to make a big leaf pile. Then we jump in it and play with the leaves. I like to see all the colers red, orange, brown, and some green. In fall I take down and store away the summer stuff for the winter. Bye.:(


  10. Dear Mrs.Moore,

    I like the photo’s that you put up.
    Something new that I learned from the presentations is that the capitol of Victoria is Melbourne.
    The picture’s look like when I go camping or when I am at school.
    In the fall I like to jump in the leaves with my friends and family. What do u like to do in the fall?
    I would just like to add something else to here. In the fall I hate racking the leaves. What is the one thing you hate to do in fall?
