What Season Is It?
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, warm, hot, cold, trees, birdsFor this activity, you will need:Pictures taken outdoors at different times during the year. The pictures may be from vacations or other trips. The pictures may have people in them, or they may not. You could ask the children to bring in pictures from home.Pictures of different types of clothing,( e.g., mittens, coats, swimsuits, shorts, raincoats, umbrellas, jackets, etc.)A magnetic board with magnets for holding up the pictures. Or a bulletin board with pins for posting the pictures. Or plenty of wall space.A box or plastic container. Directions
1. Arrange the pictures taken at different times of the year on a board or tape them to the wall.
2. Place the pictures of the different types of clothing in the box or container.
3. Have the children sit down. Talk to them about the different seasons and how the weather changes with each season. (Note: These changes may be more or less noticeable depending on where you live. Once the children understand how the seasons change where they live, it might be interesting to talk with them about other parts of the country, or the world, where the changes may be very different from ours.)
4. Have each child draw a picture of clothing from the box. Talk about the clothing in the picture. Ask them "Which season would you wear something like this?" Have the student tape, pin, or attach the picture of the clothing near one of the pictures of the seasons it would fit. Do the same for the remaining clothing pictures in the box.
