Description

Overview:
This is a lesson plan for young preschoolers designed to help assess their knowledge of the four different seasons and the weather that goes with them.  Students will learn about the four seasons and the effect they have on the weather and world around them.  They will be able to show their knowledge through art. Standard: 3–4 yr.1.1Obtain and communicate information about local, observable weather conditions while exploring and describing patterns found in different seasons. Emphasize the observation and recognition of data. Examples of data may include sunny, cloudy, windy, rainy, snowy, cold, or warm.Standard 3–4 yr.1.2Obtain and communicate information about human behavior patterns in different weather conditions. Emphasize the observation and recognition of data. Examples of data may include clothing, food, safety, and other preparations for expected weather. Thumbnail photo from: Clipartpanda.com

This is a good resource for teaching preschoolers about the different seasons. I like the use of a variety of materials used in this lesson (paint, music, video, objects to touch etc.). I also like that it allows the preschoolers to use most of their 5 senses as they participate. I like the ideas in the comments about including a sensory table to reinforce what belongs in each season.

I have made the following adjustments from my original lesson plan:

I added the standards 3-4 yr. 1.1 and 3-4 yr. 1.2. I added these in the description page because I couldn't find them in the available standards.

I added an extension idea of including activities that have to do with the different seasons (bringing in leaves for fall for art and snow in the winter for a sensory table).

Good resources for teaching seasons to preschoolers.

Something I like about this resource is the resources. The song about the weather is interactive and appealing to children. I appreciated the template for the art.

An opportunity for improvement of this resource is...as an extension of this lesson maybe helping students relate the weather to how it affects them such as what they should wear in different seasons (such as dressing a picture of a person, etc.).

Something I wonder about this resource is... Could this lesson be aligned with the following science standards for 3- and 4- year olds:

3–4 yr.1.1
Obtain and communicate information about local, observable weather conditions while exploring and describing patterns found in different seasons. Emphasize the observation and recognition of data. Examples of data may include sunny, cloudy, windy, rainy, snowy, cold, or warm.

Standard 3–4 yr.1.2
Obtain and communicate information about human behavior patterns in different weather conditions. Emphasize the observation and recognition of data. Examples of data may include clothing, food, safety, and other preparations for expected weather.

One new idea to consider in the design of this resource is.... When teaching it might be fun to include experiences for the different seasons such as bringing in leaves for fall for art and snow in the winter for a sensory table.
