Create an instructional activity using the book to teach the four seasons and incorporate the five senses and calendar yearProject Overview
Target Audience: Kindergarten/Science
The book is called “The Journey of the Four Seasons.” The book has two characters, Anna and John, that take students through the different temperature changes and activities each season. Students will learn how four seasons make up a year. They will learn to use their five senses to identify with the seasons. For example, cold temperatures and snow (touch) = winter, colored leaves (sight) = fall, hot sunny days and shorts (touch) = summer, flowers blooming (smell) and rain (hearing) = spring. The story was written and illustrated in PowerPoint.Master Story/Book
The original story was then modified for students that are physically impaired, either those with no hands or with limited feeling in their hands. The original story was taken from PowerPoint and put into a movie version with audio that will play automatically. The story was burned onto a CD to make it portable.

The original story was then modified for students that are visually impaired. We used a braille translation tool to develop this version. The story was printed and given a raised texture in order for visually impaired students to read it.
