Mammals, Insects, and Life Cycles

Spring is in full swing around here! We have had our days of crazy rain, thunderstorms, tornado warnings lately, followed by gorgeous sunny days like today.  I thought I’d take some time to share some Spring Science Classroom Resources with you all.

It’s the time of year that you start draggingโ€ฆthe end of year count down has even begun for some of you already! The following resources are great to keep your kids interested in learning, engaged, and are easy to implement for you!

The spring time in the classroom is the perfect time to engage learners as they learn about mammals, insects, and life cycles. These ideas are perfect for kindergarten and first grade!

I have recently finished my Mammals and Insect units.  Here’s a peak at some of my favorite parts!

 

 

 

I also have been working to create a unit with JUST life cycles.  All of my All About units for animals have at least 1 or 2 life cycles included, but sometimes we want something that focuses on JUST that part. This is great to do for some spring science!

You can find all of this inside this little unit posted yesterday! Don’t worry, if you have the GROWING Science Bundle I am adding that and the All About Mammals unit tonight! I hope you found some fun ideas to implement for spring science that will keep your little scientists engaged!

I’m off to enjoy the sunshine!! Have a wonderful day!
