Spring offers so many homeschooling possibilities. As the weather warms and the world once again bursts forth with new life, teaching opportunities abound. Trees bloom, butterflies emerge, gardens are planted and spring related lesson plans fill households everywhere.
Spring is a perfect time for homeschooling families to get outdoors. Whether it’s taking a hike in the mountains, visiting a nursery in preparation for planting or visiting an outdoor attraction (such as the Denver Zoo or Denver’s Botanical Gardens), the sights and sounds of the great outdoors are calling.
Inside the home, adding some fun spring related projects and worksheets into a home classroom can be as simple as a mouse click. The internet is filled with wonderful homeschooling resources.
One resource for spring project ideas is a website called Science with me. The site has a lot to offer. Looking for information about the life cycle of a butterfly or maybe you would like to teach about the water cycle during the spring showers? Check out Science with me!
