In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

Summary:

This activity allows you to chart the weather with your students, comparing the first of the month with the last of the month.

Did March come in like a lion and go out like a lamb?

What You Need:

  • Lion Printable (see below)
  • Lamb Printable (see below)
  • Markers or crayons

What You Do:

If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.

Bring up this old saying with your students to spark discussion about the weather in March.

Talk about what the saying might mean. ie: If March starts out cold and “ferocious”, like a lion, it will end up warm and “gentle” like a lamb.

Discuss what would make the weather “ferocious” like a lion? (rain, cold wind, storms, sleet, snow, etc.); What would make the weather “gentle” like a lamb? (sunshine, warm breezes, etc.)

Take the opportunity to chart the weather with your students — comparing the first of the month with the last of the month. Did it come in like a lion and go out like a lamb — or was the opposite true?
