Springtime Books for Library Patrons of All Ages!March 6, 2018
We are officially entering into spring. Hurray! But, with only a few months before the end of the school year, many media specialists are preparing for collection inventory
. It can be a little chaotic planning library lessons, inventorying your collection, and managing students. However, having a lesson plan or two up your sleeve can be helpful when spring fever hits you and your students. Check out these spring library lesson plans and activities you can use in your library.
Spring Picture Books
When you think of spring, you can’t help but think of blooming flowers, trees, leaves, and plants! Teach young library patrons about spring by reading one of these picture books.
Seeds and Plants Activities
After reading one of the spring picture books, engage students in activities to learn about how flowers and plants grow.
Seeds and Bulbs
Gather a few different kinds of flower seeds, seedlings, and plant bulbs to show kids what plants and flowers are created from. Center your lesson plan around the seed and how it grows into a flower from water, soil, and sunlight.
Bean Plant Race
Bring the feeling of spring into your library by holding a bean plant race. Have classes compete against each other by planting a few seeds in a pot, name their bean plants, and watch as their plants grow. This activity is perfect if you have a large window in your library.
Easter Egg STEM Challenge
Get students excited for spring and Easter by challenging them to build a tower made of Easter eggs. Create challenges like, who can build the tallest egg tower, place their eggshells in a pattern, and more.

Caterpillar Library Craft
Even the youngest of library patrons can get involved in this activity. Centered around the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
, you create a caterpillar paper chain using a few supplies.
