My Unit on Seasons for Educators and Families

My Unit on Seasons

Unit: Seasons  Subject: Science

Materials used during the unit:   iPad: 4 seasons app.,  book titled “The Four Seasons” by Rozanne Lanczak Williams, construction paper, shells (for the summer), cotton (winter), fake leaves (fall), soft foam sheet with sticky back  (flowers: spring) Boardmaker symbols of the  four seasons, summer, winter, fall and spring

We recently completed this unit on seasons in my classroom. As I teach lessons, I like to incorporate books and technology. The book I included in this unit was a book titled “The Four Seasons” by Rozanne Lanczak Williams. I read the book each day for a week and talked about various seasons we have in New England. Each day of the week, I talked about one of the four seasons in the unit (summer, winter, fall and spring). I used the iPad and on the iPad, I used the application called “The Four Seasons” (see picture below).  On the last day of the unit, a book of seasons was made. I also used concrete materials for the students in my class who don’t see well. I also used pictures from the Boardmaker program (the pictures you see below on the pages to the left of the book) giving each student a field of two choices during the lesson. For example, I asked each student to choose which picture is the season of summer and which picture is the season of winter.  Using Boardmaker pictures and having the concrete materials in the booklet is great for students with low vision and students with special needs. Below are the pictures of the students taken during the lesson.
