Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Spring is an exciting time to observe nature. Animals are busy exploring the world around them, plants are sprouting back to life, and the landscape we see every day is ever-changing. This week, I want you to spend some time outside. Get some fresh air and observe all that nature has to offer. You can go on a walk with your family or just observe nature right outside your door. Use all of your senses to observe what is going on around you. What do you see, smell, hear, and feel? Maybe you even notice a certain taste in the air. (Please don't use your sense of taste to sample anything else outdoors.) Take some time to slow down, look carefully, close your eyes and listen, observe something you have never noticed before.
