The Changing Seasons


 

48075140 - the changing leaves bring splashes of color to the historic kirby's mill pond in medford, nj.

Most students can identify the seasons but are not always aware of the characteristics of each season.  They know that they must put on a coat in the winter and wear a hat in the summer but may not be able to recognize that plants, animals, and people adapt to the changing seasons in different ways.

Brainstorm with the class

  • Help students recall the names of the four seasons and list them on the board.
  • Discuss characteristics such as temperature, weather conditions, and how animals, plants, and humans respond to these changes.
  • Show students the pictures of different nature scenes and have them categorize them according to which season might be pictured and why.
