BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Kindergarten students at Todd Elementary School in Briarcliff Manor recently learned all about fall through a series of hands-on workshops.

The annual Fall Festival engages students in autumn-related lessons and prompts them to work both together and independently on a number of seasonal activities.

“You are learning something about fall in each classroom,” kindergarten teacher Bonnie Seligson told students as they visited the third classroom in the rotation on Oct. 16.

In Seligson’s class, students listened to a story about a farmer whose crops were stolen by birds and learned about the role of a scarecrow on a farm. Following the story, they created an original class scarecrow by decorating the parts of its body and stuffing a shirt and pants to bring it to life.

Other activities in the kindergarten wing during the week of Oct. 13 included decorating jack-o-lanterns and learning about apples and other seasonal treats.
