Y Tree with a Family Story
We talk about the four seasons and what a tree looks like in each of those seasons. We talk about the difference between evergreen and deciduous trees. (Virginia Standards of Learning for first grade Science 1.4 Life Processes).
Next class they come in to complete their tree stories. I remind them to fill in all the peek-a-boo spots so their coloring is nice and solid. For the final touch we use white to make clouds in the sky. Then they pick from several colors to paint their sky with watercolor. Even though they did it last year on their dream houses, they still think it is magic when their clouds appear in the sky.
