1. Mark up the text. Have students reread the text-only version of the slideshow with a partner. Have them circle or underline all of the signs of spring showcased in the slideshow. Revisit the essential question: How can we capture and celebrate the phenology of spring in our neighborhood? Brainstorm ideas together.
2. Capture images of spring in your neighborhood. Take the class outside with notebooks and sketching materials in hand. Explore how many different signs of spring you can draw. Alternately, send class outside with cameras and photograph different signs of spring.
3. Create a phenology book or display. Have students work in small groups to creatively present their pictures as a celebration of spring's arrival. Sample ideas included: captioned posters, spring scrapbook, accordian-style mini-books, museum exhibit, bulletin board, etc.
