Seasonal Calendar 2012
The children have been learning about seasonal changes and colours as part of the grade one science curriculum. They worked in pairs to create one page of a calendar for the year. The calendar pictures above represent February and October.
The children brought a variety of colours and textures of paper to school and sorted the colours into different categories. Next they chose paper for their season and created a collage for a particular season.
We discussed what activities we do in different seasons or months of the year. For example, in October we see leaves changing colour and there are a lot of pumpkins during this time. In February, we celebrate friendship with others on Valentine’s Day.
The children asked questions such as:
We created twelve pictures to match the twelve months of the year. Each child created a sentence under each calendar page to represent what seasonal changes and activities we see in that month of the year.
