Welcome to the Saturday Science Blog Hop & Link Up co-hosted by Little Bins for Little Hands, Lemon Lime Adventures, Suzy Homeschooler, The Joys of Boys and yours truly!
A great way to learn about the seasons is to observe nature and record your findings on a seasons’ circle chart. This is one of the ongoing science activities from Science is Simple by Peggy Ashbrook we will be doing this homeschool year.
To create your own Seasons’ Circle all you need is a poster board and marker. Draw a large circle filling the entire poster board and then divide it into four quarters and label with the seasons as shown. I drew little picture symbols for each season since Caden cannot read yet.
While I was drawing our seasons circle chart, Caden and I talked about the season and what happens in nature during each season. He has learned that during Fall the leaves on the trees turn colors and fall to the ground, that it snows around his birthday and during winter.
Using this chart is very easy. Simply take time each week to observe nature and then record what you find on the chart. This can be an object found in nature, a picture from a magazine, photograph or drawing, glued or taped to the correct season on the chart.
Another way we will be introducing the seasons will be through books! Below you will find some great suggestions on the topic of seasons.
