The students will know the appropriate vocabulary for each season.
The students will be able to match appropriate clothing for each season.
To assess the students, I would have them create a web with each season. They must include, clothing, activities, and vocabulary.
Another way to assess the students would be to have them make a journal for each season, explaining their observations.
