Season changes are always sure to bring plenty of new learning opportunities in their wake! Fall is one of our favorite seasons as colors emerge and pumpkins abound. We have four fun lessons you can teach your little ones as you enjoy season changes together:
1. See the Seasons
Give your children visuals of what the four seasons look like with floor puzzles! Once built, discuss the differences and similarities between each and how one season fades into the next. Puzzles are always a great way to spend family time as you learn together.
2. Learn How to Dress
Learning how to dress appropriately for the season can be fun! Discuss temperature changes with your children and ask them how they think they should dress. All answers are encouraged and originality is always appreciated, but keeping kids properly clothed is a must. Here are some games to help you discuss what to wear:
3. Watch the Weather
An engaging way to keep up with season changes is to track the weather! The Weather Game allows children to match colorful photographs to the correct word cards so they track what weather patterns are associated with the different seasons.
4. Take Notice of Nature
Foster your budding scientist by encouraging him or her to adopt a tree! Observe in detail the season changes in nature by pressing tree leaves and flower petals at various times of the year and noting observations with the Nancy B’s Science Club Nature Keeper & Tree Diary. This is an especially fun project to do in the fall as leaves begin to change!
