Spring Means Science, Social Studies, and a Freebie!

This year, Spring arrives in the Northern Hemisphere on March 20th at 1:14 am EDT.  This is a great opportunity for a Science lesson as well as a Social Studies lesson.  It's also an opportunity to celebrate!

I found a couple of videos to explain how seasons work.  These are cute, but I have yet to find the perfect video about seasons, so if you know of a good one, I'd love to hear about it!

My kids tease me that I turn everything into a mapping activity.  Ok, I confess, I have a passion for Social Studies, and I love sharing what I know about the different places around the world.  As the seasons change, it's another opportunity to share what places have spring while others have autumn.  And of course, the places where the seasons never change, or don't change much!  Words like equator, tropics, and polar regions are used a lot!

And of course, Spring is an opportunity to have some fun.  Feel free to download my Spring Game Freebie!  This Spring themed game board can be used with the addition cards that come with it, or it can be used to practice any skill the children need.

Happy Vernal Equinox!
