Weather is combination of atmospheric conditions i.e. wind, rain, humidity, visibility, temperature etc for current period of time. Season is the summary of similar type of weather conditions of a few months. Weather is on a day to day basis where as season is the weather during the particular time frame of the year.
We help the children to understand the concept of weather and seasons step by step. First we help the children to understand various forms of weather and a drawing for it.
We help the children daily to interpret the weather changes and make the change of weather symbol in their magnetic calendar that we bought from Kido Motessori Materials, a play school and Montessori materials shop in Bangalore, Karnataka.
There are five seasons in India.
- Summer season- April, May, June
- Monsoon season- July, August, September
- Autumn season- October, November
- Winter season- December, January
- Spring season- February, March
The children also did a creative writing on their favourite season with the picture clues that I have prepared.
These are the picture cards that I have prepared for seasons lessons to our montessori children. I have included the pictures that will explain the characteristics of each season. I have included the pictures of dresses and foods and drinks that we prefer in each season. Also I have included the pictures of famous festivals that we celebrate during that season. And our children love the seasons cards.
And that’s our weather and seasons lessons.
