From i Cubed Curriculum, this is a poem, written about the changes that happen in spring to nature, animals, and people. It sparks discussion and allows children to make inferences.
There is a Guidebook included, giving instructions for a close read, inquiry, and activities.
The poem is also a part of the larger Smart Notebook Unit, Time For Spring, an interactive, interdisciplinary unit. This unit takes the poem to a whole new level, adding enriching informational text, and extension activities for migration, hibernation, plant growth, tree life cycles, temperature, natural resources, holidays, traditions, climate, geography, calendar math, graphing, and word problems. It offers HD photography, time lapse videos, audio files, interactive widgets and puzzles, and activity pages where children can match, label, sequence, sort, and fill in graphic organizers.
