Have you ever noticed that butterflies start fluttering about when the warm weather starts to arrive?  Butterflies go through many changes before they become beautiful and start fluttering about! Read more about butterflies here.

Garden


Spring is an excellent time to start a garden! Have you ever planted anything in the ground? This website can help you start a garden of your own and teach you when you should start planting!

"April showers bring May flowers." During Spring, the weather changes from cold to warm, then it often  begins to rain! The earth needs the rain so the plants can grow in the Springtime!

Grow a Garden
BAM! You are now a grown up! The season is Spring and the weather is super warm! Butterflies are fluttering around you and the ground is damp from the morning rain. You walk outside and into the shed. You pick up your garden tools and head into the garden to plant some of the things that you know will grow well in the Spring. Once you get done planting your garden, head back inside and cool off with a nice tall glass of lemonade. Take out a piece of paper and draw the garden you just planted! Don't forget that it's springtime and only certain things grow well during this time of the year!!


1.Go to the garden facts website!
2.Click on the picture of the carrot that says "veggies."
3.Use the orange buttons to find plants that grow well in the Spring. Remember that it is warm and rainy. Springtime begins in March.
4. Once you find 2 vegetables that grow in the Spring, draw a picture of them on the piece of construction paper that I have given you.
5. Label the plants you have drawn.
