Rain Cloud in a Jar
Dissecting a Flower
Learn more about flowers by dissecting them! If you don't have any in your yard, be sure to ask your clients, or your local florist for some discarded stems.
Color Changing Flowers
This is another classic experiment perfect for spring. All you need are some white flowers (I love carnations or daisies), and some dyed water to create your own custom colored flowers.
Grow Seeds in a Jar
Plan and Plant a vegetable garden
One of my great joys each year is planning and planting my garden in the spring. A great STEM project is to have your student plan and plant their very own garden.
Sink or Float Spring Themed Activity
Let's learn about physics! Planning a seasonal sink of float activity is always a lot of fun! Gather spring related and items and test to see if they sink or float. You can try plastic eggs, Flowers, rocks etc. -Don't forget to make a prediction about which items will sink/float before you test!
Outdoor Seed Hunt
Dissolving Peeps Activity
