Day 2


  • Look through the photos or download the presentation below to see what I found in my backyard.
  • Discuss where you might see some of these things in the yard of your house or apartment.
  • You may also be visiting a park near your home. This would be a great place to make observations.

  • Set out on a scavenger hunt to find your own signs of Spring. Remember that scientists always record what they find. There are several ways you can do this.
  • Photos- use an iPad or cell phone to take pictures of what you find.
