CoordinArt - September provides unique, fun x/y plotting practice as we head into the colors and activities of fall.
AUTUMN LEAVES: Colorful leaves fill the deciduous trees and soon begin to fall to the ground. These fallen leaves quickly become a source of entertainment as many rake them together into huge piles for hours of play. Others enjoy a simpler walk through the rustling leaves while taking in the glorious colors and the refreshing crispness in the air. With this season comes new activities to enjoy knowing winter will soon follow. What makes the leaves turn colors? The lack of chlorophyll due to the shorter days that are now here.

Crisp Apples: A sign that summer has transitioned to fall is the appearance of the fall crop of apples.

Football: American football began in 1879, but evolved from the English game of rugby. While it was Willima Ebb Ellis, a student at the Rugby School in England, who picked up the ball during the soccer game and ran with it in 1823, Walter Camp is considered the most important figure in the development of American football.
