3 Tips for exploring science during spring

Spring is a season full of changes in the world around you. These few months present us with loads of opportunities to study certain aspects of science. 

This month I wanted to share with you three tips to help you maximize the potential of the season!

3 TIPS FOR EXPLORING SCIENCE DURING SPRING

Here are three tips to help you explore the wonderful world of science this spring:

1. Dissect a spring flower.
Spring is an exceptional time to take a closer look at the structure of a flower. Many of the typical spring blooms, such as lilies, tulips, and daffodils, have clearly seen elements, which makes them excellent specimens for your students to study the structure of a flower. Check out this post for a step by step guide for a flower dissection.

2. Resume nature study.
The weather is finally turning warmer, flowers are blooming, and insects are buzzing. All of which make wonderful subjects for nature study. This month, take a few moments to do an insect hunt or study the spring blooms that are naturally found in your area.

3. Take a break to do a unit on plants.
At some point this month, you can take several days or weeks to do a unit on plants. This can be as simple as planting a seed and watching it grow. As the plant goes through each stage you can discuss the changes with your students. Or you can purchase a pre-planned study, like our program Lapbooking through Plants, which includes a plant unit study with reading assignments, vocabulary, scientific demonstrations, and lapbooking templates.

IN A NUTSHELL

Spring is a time when we all get antsy for a change of pace. You can take a break to do a unit on the plants sprouted around you, you can resume your nature study, or you can dissect a spring bloom. All of these will act like a good spring cleaning for your homeschool science routine!
