Uniforms can be quite distracting during the day because of all the restrictions. During the day you constantly have to worry about having your shirt tucked in and keeping everything according to code. While worrying about tests you are also constantly worrying about getting caught with a uniform violation. After enough uniform violations there will of course be consequences such as a detention. I personally am not always thinking about what I should be, but instead checking my uniform over and over to make sure not to get in trouble. Students have enough stress in their lives; why add more?
1. Arrange the pictures taken at different times of the year on a board or tape them to the wall.
2. Place the pictures of the different types of clothing in the box or container.
3. Have the children sit down. Talk to them about the different seasons and how the weather changes with each season. (Note: These changes may be more or less noticeable depending on where you live. Once the children understand how the seasons change where they live, it might be interesting to talk with them about other parts of the country, or the world, where the changes may be very different from ours.)
4. Have each child draw a picture of clothing from the box. Talk about the clothing in the picture. Ask them "Which season would you wear something like this?" Have the student tape, pin, or attach the picture of the clothing near one of the pictures of the seasons it would fit. Do the same for the remaining clothing pictures in the box.
