What is your favorite season? Is it summer when you can swim in the ocean? Is it autumn when you can jump in a pile of leaves? Or maybe winter when the weather is just right for sipping hot chocolate? Every Season by Shelley Rotner & Anne Love Woodhull, photographs by Anne Love Woodhull, will spark lively classroom discussions about the four seasons. The spare text complements the abundance of vibrant photographs which are sure to appeal to young children.
Use Every Season to illustrate that the changes in season, cause changes in weather, which cause changes in the activities of plants, animal and people (VA Science SOL K.9 and 1.7).
Spring–When you think of spring you think of rain. Make it rain in your classroom with this activity that demonstrates the water cycle.
Summer–Students can observe how change occurs over time by making grass head monsters.
Autumn–You can save memories of fall and study the differences between objects by doing leaf rubbings.
Winter–Young children can practice their reading and mouse skills while they enjoy building a snowman.
