During today's preschool outreach, Cycle of Seasons, children had the opportunity to take part in hands-on activities to discover about changes that may occur during the different seasons. Altogether we discussed what the word "seasons" means and how seasons never end; they keep going. As the seasons change from one to the next, we notice that the weather changes and that we may have to wear warmer or cooler clothes.
We explored the book, Sky Tree by Thomas Locker and Candace Chrristiansen, that illustrates and describes how a tree changes throughout the year as the seasons change. The tree's leaves change colors, fall off, and grow back. We furthered our exploration with leaves.
