When Winter Comes - Keeping Warm Worksheet

PDF | 6 pages|Grades: 3 - 4

A poem to activate students’ prior knowledge about keeping warm.

Use this teaching resource to activate your students’ prior knowledge about heat and keeping warm.

When winter comes, the fog descends and winds begin to blow,
The clouds begin to shed their tears, it gently starts to snow.
The flowers seem to vanish now, the birds no longer sing,
And tiny creatures hide away, waiting for the spring. 

Students read the poem, then answer the questions on the worksheet. These questions refer to the ways in which people can keep themselves warm (or warm themselves up) when they are feeling cold.
