This seasonal worksheet is called 'Summer Worksheet: Summer Activities' and was kindly provided by Scholastic, and can also be downloaded from their website. It is a one-page instruction sheet for a teacher, featuring some ideas for warm and sunny weather activities. The worksheet presents four sections:
I'm Going on a Picnic
A Field of Sunflowers
Sun Prints
Quickie Summer Activities
The first one is in essence a memorization game, when students sit in a circle and start by saying 'I'm going on a picnic, and I'm taking apple pie!'. They repeat the whole phrase each time, adding a new item to take with them on the imaginary picnic.
The second idea involves children in making a sunflower from a paper plate, paper petals and sunflower seeds. Post the ready flowers on the class board for a fantastic summer display.
Sun prints activity is based on the fading effect the sun makes on construction paper. Create collages with your students and place them in a sunny spot of the classroom. In a few days, remove the upper layers and observe the shapes created by the sun.
The final part of the worksheet is actually a list of ideas: Insect Spy, Picnic Lunch, Sky Observer and Road trip, - and how those can be organized.
