Happy first day of spring! Although this has been an exceptionally mild winter, I always find the beginning of spring to be thrilling.
In honor of this event, I am showing my kindergarten students the Spring segment of a Discovery video called The Four Seasons.
We will follow this with some garden stories and games:
Garden Shop story at Starfall
Dottie's Garden story from Primary Games
Bloomin' Gardens game from Primary Games
Caillou's Garden from PBS Kids
Arthur's Groovy Garden from PBS Kids
The Cat in the Hat's Flower Finder from PBS Kids
My Garden from Harcourt
Second graders also learned about plant life cycles with a Discovery video called Plant Life Cycles and followed with some online activities.
The Life Cycle of Plants
Plant Life Cycles, Plants, and Plant and Animal Habitats from the BBC
