The month of March roared in like a lion and has continued to be crazy weather ever since. This crazy weather system gives us the perfect opportunity to talk about the different kinds of weather all month long…
We started our month off by making roaring lions to symbolize the roar of the wind we were hearing, feeling, and seeing outside…
Our Scholastic Magazine was a perfect addition to our weather discussion as well!
We discussed how the weather was sometimes loud and sometimes quiet.
To make our first day of March absolutely outstanding, the weather was all over the map. During our morning circletime, it was very windy, then it started to rain, and then it began to hail! We stopped to watch the hail drop down on the rooftop.
We wanted to take a closer look so we threw on our coats to head outside but by the time we got outside, the hail had stopped. Still, we were able to find lots of hail around the building and we collected some hail for further observation and discussion…
The hail was cold on our hands and it felt like little ice marbles…
We managed to gather a good collection of hail and then we did a little rain walking before heading back inside.
Later in the week, it got even colder and snowed.
And of course we went outside to explore the snow. There was just enough snow on the ground to build a snow deer with stick antlers…
And then last week, it was absolutely beautiful outside! Sunny and warm and once again, we went outside to enjoy the beautiful day. Only this time, we didn’t need our coats on.
Yes, March has definitely come in roaring like a lion. Who knows what the weather will be like next week. I have heard reports that more cold weather is on its way.
Whatever the weather will be, you can bet that we will get outside and explore it!
