The Seasons of the Year
In the Spring, fruit trees come out of dormancy and grow beautiful blossoms on their branches.
Do you know what the blossoms will become?
Many baby animals are born in the Spring time too. One fun thing to do in the Spring is to play outside in the warm weather after being inside all Winter long.
The blossoms become the fruit on the tree in the summer time! Thats right, fruit grows where the trees flowers used to be.
Look at all the leaves on this tree in the Summer! The tree needs the leaves to make and store food for the tree to last through the cold Winter. This tree is busy making food for itself! One fun thing to do in the Summer is play in the cool sprinklers since the weather is so hot!
Yummy fruits have seeds in them that help new plants to grow. What comes after summer?
Autumn comes next! Some people call this season Fall. What has happened to the leaves on the trees now?
The leaves change colors because the tree has stored enough food for the Winter and does not need the leaves to make any more food this year. Soon the tree will go into dormancy, or a slowed growth process due to cold weather.
When the end of Autumn is near, the trees begin to lose their colorful leaves. One fun thing to do is rake up the fallen leaves into piles and jump in them. Give a thumbs up if you have done this before.
Now it is Winter time. All of the leaves have fallen off of the tree. The tree is in dormancy. Building a snowman is a fun thing to do in the Winter!
Be patient tree, soon it will be Spring time again and you will make new blossoms on your branches.
Now lets compare… Spring: (Blossoms) End of March, April, May, until the end of June Summer: (Fruits) End of June, July, August, until the end of September Autumn (Colorful leaves) End of Sept., Oct., Nov., until the end of Dec. Winter (Bare tree) End of Dec., Jan., Feb., until the end of March
