30 mins 3. EXPLORATION/PRACTICE(group/individual)

Creating a season and month wheel on a paper plate. Draw


two lines on the plate to create a cross/into 4 even quarters.
In each quarter write the season starting with summer,
autumn, winter then spring. On the outside write the months
of the year.
Have an example to show the class.

If students finish early, then can complete the worksheet
