IN LIKE A LION, OUT LIKE A LAMB [From: Weather]
Written by: Andrea Mulder-Slater [Andrea is one of the creators of KinderArt.com]

Age:

2-5 years

Activity Summary:

This activity allows you to chart the weather with your students -- comparing the first of the month with the last of the month.

Did it come in like a lion and go out like a lamb -- or was the opposite true?

What You Need:

•Lion Printable (see below)
•Lamb Printable (see below)
• Markers or crayons

What You Do:

If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.
  • Bring up this old saying with your students to spark discussion about the weather in March.

  • Talk about what the saying might mean. ie: If March starts out cold and "ferocious", like a lion, it will end up warm and "gentle" like a lamb.

  • Discuss what would make the weather "ferocious" like a lion? (rain, cold wind, storms, sleet, snow, etc.); What would make the weather "gentle" like a lamb? (sunshine, warm breezes, etc.)

  • Take the opportunity to chart the weather with your students -- comparing the first of the month with the last of the month. Did it come in like a lion and go out like a lamb -- or was the opposite true?
