The Four Seasons

Before Christmas break our Science unit was seasons and weather. We took a week to learn about both, but I will blog about the seasons stuff first.
Here is the poem that we love to say:
These are the seasons,
Four in all,
Winter, Spring,
Summer, Fall.

So, we learned about a different season each day & then we made a tree to represent that season. Here are the pics...(Sorry, but blogger will not let me rotate them)

Our Winter treee was made by tracing a tree template, cutting it out & gluing it to blue paper, and then adding the snow with a Q-Tip. You can't tell, but before they dried we sprinkled glitter on them so they would have a little sparkle. :)

Spring trees were made the same way: trace, cut, glue. Then, they added the leaves and flowers with tissue paper.

Summer Trees were made with green torn paper.

Fall tree was made by using sponges to paint leaves onto the tree.

On Friday, we reviewed all the seasons, recited the poem & added it to our poetry journal. Then, we made the cover of our book. So cute! :)
This is one of the science projects that I love! The kids are always excited to get their finished books on Friday!
