Changing Seasons Word Search Worksheet

Help students build vocabulary to describe seasonal changes in the environment, using this set of three differentiated seasons worksheets. Word searches are always a hit with kids, and these ones will equip them with language they’ll find useful when making and recording observations of the phenomena of seasonal changes.

To complete the task, students must locate and mark (circle or colour in) each word listed in the word bank. 

Through this activity, students will develop language to describe seasonal changes in the environment.
