Spring Nature Walk

It is always great to take young children for walks around the neighbourhood, to a local park or ravine. These walks can turn into “teachable” moments. Spring walks are a good time to observe what is happening in nature. Here are some ideas for discussion:

  • buds on trees and shrubs that become leaves
  • birds nests in trees with eggs in them
  • tulips and daffodils  that are blossoming
  • brown lawns that are turning nice and green with the warmer weather and rain
  • worms on the sidewalk after the rain
  • ducks that are returning back from the winter away
  • squirrels and chipmunks coming out of  hibernation

You can have the children collect small dandelions or wild flowers, interesting twigs or rocks to decorate your house or classroom.
