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.
