Kindergarten Standard 3 Students will develop an understanding of their environment.
Objective 1 Investigate changes in the seasons.
- Identify the seasons and represent each with pictures and songs.
- Observe and describe typical weather for each of the seasons.
Classifying images into categories (seasons). This is good for kindergarteners, who, for the most part, can't read. But they know how to read symbols and pictures. So classifying pictures into categories is great. The categories are even color coded: blue for winter, green for spring, yellow for summer, and orange for fall.
Kidspiration>Science Activities>Seasons. This is good to use because it is already set up in the program for the teacher, each students' page can be saved so that the teacher can check over them, and it's a very simple program so students won't get confused. Plus, kids love to use computers.
