Procedure

First, you will teach the four seasons: fall, winter, spring, and summer.

You can teach this by having a chart with four columns. Write one season in each column.

Then, you can have pictures of each season for students to put on the chart. You can use tape for the pictures.

You can also write words that relate to the different seasons.

Talk about the kinds of clothes you would wear, the activities you would do, and the kind of weather you experience in these different seasons.

You can also ask the students what their favorite season is and why they like that season.

Then, you can ask them what season it is when they start school and what season it is when they are out of school for that school year.

After you discuss the different seasons, then you can give the students a color sheet on each of the different seasons.

Then, you can read a book or two about the different seasons.

Finally, you can also give the students the following worksheet:

1. What season is it when the ground is white?
