Why do Leaves Fall in Autumn? How do Birds make their Nests? How was Football Invented?

Friday, 29 November

Everything Under the Sun is back! This week we're answering questions about autumn leaves, birds nests and football!

To answer the question about leaves we have Karen from The Woodland Trust in England. Join us to discover how trees hibernate a bit like hedgehogs and why they make beautiful coloured leaves that fall in Autumn.

Find out all about birds and their nests, the biggest nest and the smallest nest in the world as well as birds that build nests out of pebbles, borrow other birds nests or just don't bother with nests at all!

Uncover the story of how football went from being a bun fight between rival villages with hundreds of people joining in to the international game with rules it is now with James Harkin, writer for the TV show QI and host of No Such Thing as A Fish podcast.

Subscribe now to be the first to get the weekly podcast!

If you have a question you would like answered on the show all you have to do is ask an adult to record you asking it. Ask them to use a smartphone, open the voice recording app and record you asking your question, just say your name, your age, a bit about yourself and ask me your question! And send it in to molly@everythingunderthesun.co.uk

Also if you like the show remember to rate it and leave a lovely review wherever you listen to the podcast.

And of course, tell all your friends to listen!

I hope you have a lovely week walking in the beautiful leaves if its Autumn where you are, perhaps you'll spot a birds nest or kick a football about.
