Our earth is slightly tilted on its axis. When the sun shines on the earth, it shines more directly on the northern hemisphere in June and more directly on the southern hemisphere in December. This causes each hemisphere to experience seasons differently. In the spring and fall, the sun shines pretty straight on the equator, which means both hemispheres receive pretty equal warming.

Elementary homeschool science is fun. Experience some of this fun by singing a song or listening to a poem about seasons.

Read the poems and sing the songs below, then make up a song or poem all by yourself for each season. Teach your song or read your poem to your family and friends.

Seasons

I’m glad I live
Where seasons change –
I like my world
To rearrange.

Easy seasons

Spring’s all buttercups
and breezy.

Summer’s hot and
bumblebees-y.

Autumn’s bright with
colored trees-y.

Winter’s snowy,
sniffly, sneezy.

Alan Benjamin

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall

(to the tune of “This Old Man”)

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall
There are seasons, four in all.

Weather changes, sun and rain and snow,
Leaves fall down and flowers grow.

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall
There are seasons, four in all.

Look outside and you will see
Just what season it will be!

Seasons of the Year

(To the tune of “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush”)

CHORUS:
Here we go round the year again,
The year again, the year again.
Here we go round the year again,
To greet the different seasons.

Wintertime is time for snow.
To the south, the birds will go.
It’s too cold for plants to grow
Because it is the winter.

Here we go round the year again,
The year again, the year again.
Here we go round the year again,
To greet the different seasons.

In the springtime, days grow warm.
On the plants, the new buds form.
Bees and bugs come out to swarm
Because it is the spring.

CHORUS

In summertime, the days are hot.
Ice cold drinks I drink a lot!
At the beach, I’ve got a spot
Because it is the summer.

CHORUS

Fall is here, the air is cool.
Days are short, it’s back to school.
Raking leaves is now the rule
Because it is autumn.

CHORUS
