Spanish seasons are fun to learn. Seasons occur in a cycle: winter, spring, summer, and fall.
In this Spanish lesson about learning seasons, you’ll learn the basic information about seasons and how plants adapt to the different changes in seasons.
Make sure to go over the Spanish seasons keyword and learning activity in using this lesson plan.
Brief science background
As seasons start to change, the climate also starts to transform. Winter brings bare trees, snow, and freezing temperatures.
Spring will start to thaw the ice in tree branches and plants. Summer will provide the warmth to allow fruits, flowers, and animals to flourish and increase in population.
Fall will begin to bring rain and wind. The leaves begin to change color. What type of climates or weather do we usually see?
Plants adapt to changes in the seasons
Whether is a dynamic part of the earth and the environment. It can provide the marking of season change or variations to the environment.
Trees will shed their leaves to conserve energy during the fall season. This is called abscission or cleavage of the leaves from branches. Fruits will also cleave off from a tree.
Windy and rainy conditions are also part of autumn, bringing much change to the landscape. During winter, the snow and ice can start to accumulate in forests, mountains, and hills.
Climate changes and animals benefit
In some places close to oceans and lakes, fog can occur, creating a dense layer of moisture and cloudiness. But what happens to water molecules in snow and ice as warmer weather approaches?
During spring, the weather begins to get warm to allow ice to melt and animals to emerge from hibernation. The ice layers accumulated on top of lakes, ponds or tree branches begin to thaw, converting the solid ice to liquid water.
Summer starts when warm weather heats up. Trees, flowers, plants, and animals are at their peak, enjoying the warm weather and fruits.
They begin to feed on the plentiful resources in the environment. But what happens when climate begins to change too soon or too late?
