This lesson is based around the topic of the four seasons.

Certain activities may or may not be appropriate depending on where you are working and how extreme the seasonal variations in the weather and way of life are. If you are in a place that doesn’t have big seasonal changes students may still be interested in the topic but Task 2 should be omitted or adapted.
