What are the Signs of Spring?

By Emma Gavin

The Basic Idea

Give children the chance to look for signs of Spring in their local area or school grounds. Encourage children to take photos of things the see that tell them Spring is here.

Whilst learning about the seasons give children the opportunity to notice signs of Spring around their school grounds or local area. Give children cameras to take photos of the things they see that tell them Spring is here. Use the photos as a stimulus for discussion and create a collage of the photos for display.

How to take it even further or make it more challenging

Do this each season to give children a chance to notice and talk about the differences between the photos and how the seasons change.
