KET's Everyday Science is funded in part by Kentucky Power and the American Electric Power Foundation and PNC Bank.
In this interactive game, children are prompted to help the boy in the picture get dressed for each different season.
The earth changes with each season—and children can enjoy and learn from these changes. Observing the ways in which these changes take place can be a wonderful tool to introduce concepts such as evaluation and very basic problem solving.
This resource is part of the KET Everyday Science collection.
Nature changes with each season. In winter, some birds leave and fly to where it is warmer. In spring, when the weather gets warmer, they come back. In fall, the leaves on the trees change color and become bright red, yellow and orange. Then they fall off so the tree can rest during the cold winter days and nights. The tree will grow new leaves when the warm weather of spring returns.
Just like nature, we change the way we dress with each season. We wear heavier clothes when the weather is colder to keep us warm. And in the warmer months, we wear clothes that will help us stay cool. As the seasons change, we also change how we play outside. Learning to notice these changes will help children begin to identify the differences each season brings.
Dress for the Weather is an interactive game for young children that can help reinforce their awareness of how people adapt to the change in weather from season to season.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
