Our Seasons, Months and Days of the Week Lapbook makes teaching how rotation and revolution impact the seasons a SNAP. It’s also “hemisphere” neutral and works regardless of where you are in the world. “Sun” and “Earth” are careful to refer to the changing seasons by MONTH rather than as the “Autumn Equinox” for example. These terms are important for students to have a healthy world view - not to mention the being .
scientifically accurate way to refer to the seasons!
You also get a great overview of the history of the Gregorian Calendar when completing the Monthly History Pockets. The included informational text can be read by students or teacher depending on the age of the learner! We even have a SECOND slide presentation and teaching video that includes this calendar history and How the months got their names.
This Incredible year-long resource also helps students practice writing the date. This can be an activity you choose to do DAILY with learners or just for a month or two. There are templates to use as a guide included in the packet for the various date writing formats.
