Finally, we’re starting to see the signs of spring. It was a brutally cold winter. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been longing for warmer temperatures, budding trees, and green shoots.
I’ve found that most children love spring. The warmer temperatures and longer days entice kids outside. Spring brings tadpoles, dandelions, and mud puddles to enjoy. What’s not to love?
Why not take advantage of your student’s enthusiasm and bring a little spring joy indoors? To help you we collected our favorite spring activities. We’ve got spring science, math /literacy worksheets, and other spring resources. All these activities will engage your students and make your lessons fun.
