This lesson accompanies the BrainPOP Jr. topic Seasons, and supports the standard of comparing and describing changing patterns in nature that repeat themselves day to day and season to season. Students demonstrate understanding through a variety of projects.

Step 1: ACTIVATE PRIOR KNOWLEDGE

Prompt students to observe and make predictions about weather. Ask:

  • What does the temperature feel like today? 
  • What do you think the temperature will feel like tomorrow? A month from now?

Step 2: BUILD KNOWLEDGE

  • Play the Seasons movie.  
  • Click the pause button each time a question appears in Annie’s Notebook and discuss it as a class. Then play to see how Annie answers it. 

TIP: The pause button turns red to remind you to pause. 

Step 3: APPLY and ASSESS

Students take the Easy Quiz or Hard Quiz, demonstrating what they learned about the topic while applying essential literacy skills.

Step 4: DEEPEN and EXTEND

Students express what they learned about seasons while practicing essential literacy skills with one or more of the following activities. Differentiate by assigning ones that meet individual student or grade-level needs.
