Plan ahead! Integrate science and language arts! Schedule your reading of C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch, and The Wardrobe to coincide with the arrival of spring. As pupils read Chapter 11 of the Lewis classic, they are assigned one of the trees or flowers mentioned, as well as vegetation found on the school grounds, to research. Using the provided templates they draw a picture of their plant, record important facts, and record observations as the plant changes with the seasons. The richly detailed series of lessons would work in any climate zone.
Even the youngest kids can make scientific comparisons using collected data. They read The Tiny Seed, then discuss the essential nutrients and elements needed for a seed to grow into a blooming plant. They plant seeds and track their growth using a sting, create paper plant, and label it. After their seeds have bloomed they give them to their moms along with a Mother's Day poem. Great ideas!
Meteorology majors will be enriched by this presentation on the movement of dust throughout our world atmosphere. They will examine graphs of the spatial and chemical patterns of the dust suspended over North America and then extend the study to other continents. The background knowledge required for understanding this presentation makes it most appropriate for advanced environmental science learners or college courses. It is top-notch in appearance and information content!
Explore the abundance of spring, no matter what season you are covering in your class! Using the poetry of Paul Laurence Dunbar, GALE Biography Resource Center, and Litfinder, pupils work on researching the poet and analyzing the use of spring in his writing. The procedure of the lesson is good, but you will need to include your own final assessment.
