4 seasons tree craft and activity

4 Seasons Tree Art Activity / Craft

You can use this one page activity with students learning about the four seasons.

There are four trees with bare branches. Cut the squares out and paste them onto colored construction paper. Kids can then decorate the trees to depict the four seasons. They can use crayons, markers, tissue paper, torn up pieces of colored construction paper, or even real bits of leaves! Bits of cotton balls and toilet paper will work for the winter tree. This project is easy to do and the results are really cute!

This printable activity is an adapted excerpt from The Science of Seasons Learn-and-Play Activities book. You can purchase the entire book from, or you can buy the PDF version here at!

There is also a "check" card so students can check their work (especially if the cards get "mixed up"). Click the following animal names in the table below for a printable that looks similar to the one on the left. Students can compare the animal cards to see the similarities and differences in classification names.

Flower notebooking page

FREE Flower notebooking page (editable in Microsoft Word)

This blank sheet (a filled in example is shown to the left) is for recording the various plants and flowers you'll be learning about this year. You can choose from an editable page that can be filled out on your computer or one to print out and fill in by hand.

These pages will make a nice scrapbook of plants and flowers and help you learn to easily identify them out in the world!


  1. Paste a picture in directly from the Internet. Google an example of the plant in Google images, right click & copy your favorite image and then paste it into the box in MS Word. Resize it as necessary.
  2. Type in your plant or flower facts directly onto the page in the fact box.
  3. Type the name of your plant into the name box on the top right.
  4. Choose colors to represent the main colors of your flower or plant. For example: Asters come in a variety of colors. Some Aster flowers are purple, light pink, yellow, light blue or a deep fuchsia. I've colored the circles in the Nature's Paintbox section to represent the main colors the Aster flower comes in.

    To color in the circles in MS Word, click on a circle, right click and choose "format auto shape". On the first tab marked colors and lines click the drop down menu marked color. Choose "More colors" and then choose from the honeycomb of colors or from the slider on the custom color tab.

    You may enjoy coloring the circles by hand with markers, crayons, paint or colored pencils instead. If that's the case, wait until you've printed the page out.

Solids, Liquids, and Gases Printable

Solids, Liquids, and Gases Printable

You get two printable pages in this download and one title page that serves as an answer key. The first printable page has 12 labeled pictures to cut out. Paste the pictures into the appropriate spots on the 2nd page .

There is a “challenge” square that features shaving cream. If possible, allow your students to touch real shaving cream and make their guesses as to which section it should be pasted into. You can explain that shaving cream is a liquid soap with a lot of gas bubbles mixed in. The gas bubbles make it thick enough to keep its shape. Allow your students to look at it with a magnifying glass. You can also leave it out overnight to see what happens! The liquid will evaporate and leave behind a thin, solid layer of soap.

Glue or place round cereal (or use other similar objects) to the page, to show how atoms are packed into solids, liquids and gases.

Happy learning!

The 1st option is already illustrated, with definitions for each stage of the water cycle. The 2nd option isn’t illustrated. Kids can draw their own illustrations beneath the definitions.
