Poem Four Seasons Springtime is a green time When seedlings start their growing. Summertime’s a rainbow time When many blooms are blowing. Autumntime’s a brown time When seeds are ripe for sowing; But wintertime’s a white time (It’s the flower’s nighttime) When stars of frost are glowing This poem was by Rowena Bennett
Facts about Seasons The Earth has four seasons. Seasons are the changes in the weather that last for a certain period of time.
How Seasons Occur The Earth is always moving around the Sun and is always spinning even though we cannot feel it. Because the Earth is spinning parts of the Earth are closer to the Sun and and other parts are farther away from the Sun at one given time. The Earth is tilted to the side just slightly as it turns. This causes the Earth to have seasons.
The Seasons Move In Order Winter Spring Summer Fall
Winter Temperatures tend to be colder in the winter versus the other seasons. The part of the Earth that experiences winter is the part that is tilted and turned far away from the Sun. In the winter the weather tends to have snow and ice. Tree branches look bare and some animals to go into hibernation. The days become short and nights become long. Even though you may be experiencing winter there are other people across the world experiencing summer at the same time.

Spring Temperatures increase compared to winter and days grow longer. Flowers burst into bloom and buds appear on branches of trees. Grass becomes green again. Animals start to come out of hibernation.
Clothing for the Spring The weather starts off cooler because of the winter temperatures but then becomes warmer. Because of the temperature differences there is a variety of clothing worn. Sometimes pants and sweatshirts Sometimes shorts and a t-shirt

Summer Insects come out and buzz from leaf to flower. Birds nest are hidden by green leaves on trees. Baby birds are in these nests.

Poem Sniff When school is out, we love to follow our noses over a hill and hollow, smelling jewelweed and vetch, sniffing fern and milkweed patch. The air fifth of our five senses leads us under, over, fences. We run like rabbits through bright hours and poke our noses into flowers! This poem is by Frances Frost It was taken from Sing and Seasons
Fall Fall is the season where leaves fall off trees and change colors. Another name for Fall is Autumn. Leaves are the colors Red, Orange, Yellow, and Brown. Birds nests are empty and dry leaves crunch beneath your feet. Crops are harvested and days become shorter

Autumn Woods Autumn Woods I like the woods In autumn When dry leaves hide the ground, When the trees are bare And the wind sweeps by With the lonesome rushing sound. I can rustle the leaves In autumn And I can make a bed In the thick dry leaves That have fallen From the bare trees Overhead. This poem is by James S. Tippett Taken from Sung Under the Silver Umbrella by Macmillan Company.
