Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we are going to compare seasons.

What does it mean to compare?

Comparing is when we look at two or more things and think about what is the same and what is different.

For example, if we wanted to compare spring and summer we could say that they are similar (almost the same) because they have more daylight than autumn and winter.


But we could also say that they are different, as summer has much more daylight and spring has more rain than summer.

Nature acts differently in each season too and we can compare this as well.

For example, in winter, some animals store food and hibernate (sleep for the whole winter) and plants die back and live underground until spring. These are similarities.

This is very different to spring, when trees grow new leaves and buds, flowers grow out of the ground and baby animals like lambs, chicks and rabbits are born. The ground isn’t frozen any more, so there’s yummy grass and bugs to munch on! These are differences.
