Simple Science: Spring Science

Spring Science
Hello April!   Spend some time using science tools to explore spring!  A simple set up of tools like a magnifying glass and tweezers with fake flowers and insects can turn into a great writing lesson on using detailed and descriptive words!
The setup!  Grab some fun spring items from the craft store: fake flowers and plants, plastic insects, mini chicks and bunnies.  Any sorts of little goodies that would look great under a magnifying glass or that could be picked up by some large tweezers.  Encourage kiddos to gather descriptive words!

Getting ready for spring science!  We gather small spring items for students to explore....fake flowers, plants, and insects from the craft store.
Introduce the season of spring and use this senses recording sheet to have a great discussion about the new seasonGrab Everything Spring on Amazon (affiliate link)
 We also paired this recording sheet with fun spring 'things' that kiddos can manipulate to take a closer look and sort into groups.
Pairing this microscope with all of our 'spring things' was really fun for kiddos too!  It was an engaging warm up this FREE writing sheet!  Grab it on Amazon! Learning Resources Microscope (affiliate link)
