Are you ready for it to warm up outside? More so, are you ready for the return of outdoor recess? I know I am! Hearing the birds chirping and seeing the sun shining again is so nice. While enjoying the warmer weather, students know it means the Easter Bunny will soon be coming. So, they are eager to focus on celebrating spring and Easter in the classroom! Thankfully, you have science experiments, April Math Puzzles, and a Directed Drawing Bundle! Students will love celebrating with their classmates.
Celebrating spring and Easter in the classroom is the perfect time to incorporate fun science experiments!
Students love slime! So, creating oobleck is an amazing experiment to do in the classroom! You just mix some cornstarch and water to make this fantastic learning tool. It builds the perfect conversation since it is a liquid and a solid. Students will notice you can squeeze it tightly to feel the solid and chalky texture. However, they can also let it rest in their warm hands to see it ooze as a liquid. This is such a neat project!
Students love anything that flies. So, the circle fliers create the ideal contraption that requires very few supplies. Students just need a straw and two loops of paper or index cards. This project allows the class to explore air, gravity, engineering, prediction, and modifications. Best of all, students just get to have fun! If you have a hill around your area, students can go to the top and see which one can fly the farthest.
Easter Stained Glass
Creating stained glass is the perfect creation when celebrating spring and Easter in the classroom. Thankfully, there is the perfect one for Easter! The thick black lines allow all students to see success in creating their stained glass. After coloring the picture, rub a small bit of oil to make them translucent. Honestly, they are mesmerizing when hung on the windows.
Students love puzzles! So, these no-prep, hands-on differentiated math and writing puzzles are perfect for celebrating spring and Easter in the classroom!
