Signs of Spring!
Spring is here and it's almost time for the end of the school year!  You're getting ready to go into 1st grade.  Imagine that you are recognized for being good all year long.  You get to go into the pre-kindergarten classroom and help the teacher teach the children a lesson!  The pre-k kids have just started learning about Spring.  All of a sudden, one of the pre-kindergarten children asks you to explain how they will know when Spring has arrived.  Using the link that explained how our five senses help us figure out when Spring is here, draw some pictures explaining how we know that Spring has arrived!        
Mission Steps
1.   Read and discuss the selected informational website, Spring Is Here.
2.  As you visit the website, think about if you've ever noticed these signs of Spring before.
3.  After given a white piece of construction paper with four sections on it:  (A)FEEL, (B)SEE, (C)SMELL, and (D)HEAR, you will draw pictures of the things you feel, see, smell, and hear during Spring!
4.   Give the drawing to the teacher, and make sure you can tell him or her the pictures that you drew about Spring!
