Spring has sprung! It’s time to welcome back the warm weather, blooming flowers, and longer days; it’s what we’ve waited for all winter long! To celebrate, we’ve rounded up 5 classroom activities to get your students in the spring spirit.

DIY Upcycled Potted Plants

Succulents are low-maintenance plants, some only needing a spritz of water once a month! Have students build and decorate their pots, and they can bring home their succulents to take care of. It’s a great introduction to plant care and gives students a sense of newfound responsibility.

Egg Decorating

This is a classic springtime activity that never gets old. Let your students tap into their creative side to create some colorful springtime masterpieces!

How Big is Your Carbon Footprint?

It’s important to teach students how to care for the world around them. This Earth Day activity is a great way to demonstrate how their actions have an impact on the environment so they can make informed decisions moving forward. For each ring, offer ways students can be more green in their day-to-day life to avoid climate anxiety.

Egg Carton Greenhouse Project

Reduce, reuse, recycle! What better way to teach the importance of these values than using things you already have to grow a garden? Your students will love coming into school to see their plant’s progress all spring long. What’s more, this hands-on activity is a great exercise for cognitive development!

Chromatography Butterflies

Looking for a science experiment? These beautiful chromatography butterflies are a great way to explore separating mixtures to see how colors are created! No two butterflies will look alike, and there are so many different factors that determine how they come out. Your students will be amazed!
