Science - Kindergarten
Standard 2 Objective 1
1 class periods of 30 minutes each
This is a Unit. Do each activity on separate days. Students observe the changes in our environment during the spring. They use their sense of touch, sight, hearing and smell to investigate their surroundings. Students discuss how a shadow forms, how large rocks become smaller rocks, and finally learn the different parts of a plant. Consider using non fiction books read outside; Look What I did with a Leaf? by Morteza E. Sohi and Red Leaf Yellow Leaf and Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert
Pre-lab discussion: Show the students a picture of a tulip (or whatever spring flower they will find outside) and tell them they are going on a tulip hunt. Ask them if they see tulips all summer long or in just a special season. Take them outside and begin the spring nature walk.
Instructional Procedures: Take the students outside for this activity.
