Children observe seasonal changes to detect how plants and animals are affected.
Ask students and family members to recycled expired calendars that contain seasonal pictures and art depicting geography, diversity, family events, and animals.
Talk with the class about what seasons are and what seasons they experience where they live. Ask students how they know what season it is. Write their responses on a classroom white board or easel paper.
Ask students to select pictures from the recycled calendars that represent each season. Students may tear the pictures out of the calendars or cut them out using Crayola® Scissors.
Provide each child with four manila file folders. Students use Crayola® Glue Sticks to attach one picture to the outside of a file folder that represents a particular season. All other pictures of that season should be stored in that file folder. For example, if the outside of the file folder has a picture of a sunny day with children swimming in a pool, the folder represents summer. Inside that folder should be all the student's selected pictures of summer. Each student should have four folders with pictures when this step in the activity concludes.
Organize students into four small groups, Assign an adult to each group. Students travel to each station and discuss one season while in that station. Once this step is finished, students will have shared information about all four seasons.
