Brainstorm ideas for the season of SPRING:
Have each child chose a green colored pencil in advance ("choose a colored pencil that you think is the color of a baby plant") and then they each need to go outside and find a brand-new tiny baby plant coming up out of the soil. It has to be so brand-new that they are the very first person in the world to stop and see it! It's a great activity. Then sketch it and notice if the green pencil that you chose is the correct green for the color of your baby plant.
It is incredible to think that the Earth once was covered with nothing but fire and a barren wrinkled skin of cooled lava... and now it is covered in LIFE!
We will use this final Season study of Spring as a transition into a block on the Timeline of Life, not typically done in Waldorf schools but done in Montessori schools each year for ages 6-9 (as the Second Great Lesson).
It's a great topic!
