Changing of the Seasons and Holiday Lessons
There is never a better time to learn about the changing of seasons and the different rhythms of the year than when students can actually see and feel the changes occurring. Winter often brings a dramatic seasonal change that can support learning and curiosity. The learning doesn’t have to be limited to just the seasons, use the winter and holiday season to teach math concepts, creative writing, and spark students’ curiosity and creativity through games and activities.
Looking for some pre-made lessons on the changing of seasons? How about some word problems: winter edition style! Feed your students’ inner scientist with lessons on how animals prepare for the winter months, or dig into how trees survive the winter. Bring addition and subtraction to life with melting snowmen. We got you covered for the holiday season and beyond.
Take a deep dive into all the different holidays that take place during this season with our holiday collection. We have 28 lessons covering various subjects ready to go, covering Christmas, Hanukkah and even Kwanzaa. And don’t forget our New Year lessons that are designed to support goal setting and reflection.
