Description

Seasons: Different times of year have different amounts of sunlight. There are seasonal patterns of the motion of the Sun and Earth. Students will learn about the four seasons, and how the revolution of the Earth around the Sun affects the 4 seasons. Great seasons science activities!

This resource is designed to meet the NGSS standard:

1-ESS1-2. Make observations at different times of year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year. Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on relative comparisons of the amount of daylight in the winter to the amount in the spring or fall.] Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to relative amounts of daylight, not quantifying the hours or time of daylight.

And Utah SEEd for 1st Grade

1.1: SEASONS AND SPACE PATTERNS Seasonal patterns of motion of the Sun, Moon, and stars can be observed, described, and predicted. These patterns may vary depending on the region, location, or time of year.

Utah SEEd

Standard 1.1.2 Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the patterns observed at different times of the year to relate the amount of daylight to the time of year. Emphasize the variation in daylight patterns at different times of the day and at different times of the year. Examples could include varying locations and regions throughout the state, country, and world. (ESS1.B)

This resource includes labs, lesson plans, age-appropriate worksheets, puzzles for vocabulary, word wall words, and a slide show.

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!
