always stay the same?

seasons but it isnt the only thing. Each season happens at a certain time of the
year, has its own special holidays, and there are special activities that we do
during each season.
After:
-Teacher will write the four seasons on the board and review what goes on
during each one and students will then make a season chart.

to describe something about each season using pencils and markers.
