Free Preschool and Kindergarten Squirrels Activities

Ask children what they like about trees. Think about the leaves that change in colors from season to season. What are some other beautiful things about trees?

  • Trees give us shade and help cool the air.
  • Trees clean our air.
  • Trees provide homes and food for many animals (birds, squirrels, bugs, and mice).
  • These animals and others get much of their food from trees (bark, nuts, leaves, and fruit).

Seasons of Life

Show pictures of trees in each season of the year. Ask children to identify the season and choose words to describe each: bare, blossoming, budding, colorful, green, etc. Ask children what else is going on in nature during each of these seasons when the tree changes (colder or warmer temperatures, snow, etc.). Ask children if they know what makes the tree change.

Explain that trees change because the temperature changes and the length of the days grow or are getting shorter.

The days are long. The weather is warm. The leaves are green.
Long summer days with lots of sunshine help trees produce food for themselves so they can grow and produce fruits.

The days are growing shorter. The weather is growing colder. The leaves are red, orange, yellow, and brown.

In the shorter, colder days of fall the tree stops making food and drops the leaves to get ready for winter.

The days are short. The weather is cold. The leaves have fallen off the tree.

In winter the trees go into a resting time.

The days are growing longer. The weather is growing warmer. New leaves are growing on the tree.

In spring the days are getting longer and the air gets warmer. The trees start making leaves.
