The students will be able to identify characteristics of the seasons as they read, observe, discuss and explore information.
The seasons of the year are a part of everyday living. Children can learn about the seasonal changes of their world by reading informational texts, observing the characteristics of each season (such as the weather, length of daylight, animal behavior, plant growth, holidays, clothing, and activities). It is important to build their background knowledge of why these changes occur, and how these changes affect the physical world they live in.
Math: are measurement of days, weeks, months, year and the calendar.
Social Studies: holidays and customs. Science: life cycles, habitats, temperature and weather.
Invitation to Learn:
The students are invited to look at the four black silhouette symbols that represent a season. They are asked to match the symbol to a season and tell their thinking out loud.
Below (steps 8 11) is the outline to use for each seasons exploration. There are many books about seasons to choose from. The titles by Linda Glaser were chosen because of the variety of information about each season compiled in one book. Important characteristics to point out include weather, temperature, activities, length of sunlight, clothing, animal and plant changes during the seasons.
