6. FUTURE LEARNING:

6.1. Students will be able to carry this knowledge with them throughout science classes and life.

7. METHOD (S) OF TEACHING THIS LESSON:

7.1. The teacher will begin by gathering all materials needed, then set up each table in an organized way for students to have easy access to materials. The teacher will begin the lesson by reading a couple books on seasons/weather and the changes that trees go through. The teacher will then open a discussion with the class to ask and answer questions. The teacher will then explain the process in which they would like the activity to go and demonstrate how to make all 4 types of trees; (Summer, Winter, Spring, Fall). After all tress are made the teacher will open another final discussion for questions and answers, then finish the lesson by displaying all paper bag trees in their appropriate season groups.

12. EVALUATION:

12.1. After performing this lesson the teacher will ask the same questions the students were able to ask him/her during their discussion time and see if the students can answer the questions. The teacher may also set out all of the trees in a jumbled fashion and let each student identify each tree in whatever season it appears to be in based on leaf color and amount of leaves.
