#CelebrateWithDE – First Day of Spring

Harness the energy that spring often brings and celebrate new beginnings and creative activities with your students. Consider a special spring project to do as a class. You might plant a real or craft garden; make bunches of paper flowers to deliver to the office, a younger classroom, or anyone on campus who may enjoy one; or, have students create special hats (like Easter bonnets) that express the best of spring. Use the resources below to help students spring into action.
