My students are learning how to compare/contrast the four seasons. We are going to make a quilt using the 16 squares (4x4) as follows:
Spring Feels---Summer Feels---Fall Feels---Winter Feels
Spring wear----Summer wear-----Fall wear----Winter wear
Spring see -----Summer see ------Fall see------Winter see
Spring smell---Summer smell----Fall smell----Winter smell
I will differentiate this activity based on the various needs of my students.
Group 1 - We will complete the page that describe the senses for just one season (working vertically along the quilt). We will describe all about the one season using the completed poster as visual reference (pages 13-16). After they have cut and sorted the pictures to complete their page, then we will cut apart to make the vertical column. We will add each season’s column until the entire quilt is completed.
(pages 9-12, 17-19)
Group 2 – We will complete the page that describes one sense for all seasons (working horizontally across the quilt). This will allow us to contrast each season. They will complete their page then build their quilt by rows. (pages 3-6, 17-19)
Each student will be able to make a choice of their favorite season and provide supporting reasons using the choice strips. (pages 7-8)

Several people have requested to see a picture of the finished product. I was going to add a picture into this file, however, my original file is all messed up due to my computer crashing. So...please check out the pictures in this blog post
to see the end result. Thanks for the feedback!!
