Free March In Like a Lion Out Like a Lamb Calendar & Weather Activity

My students always enjoy this calendar activity! I hope yours will too!

Does the saying “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb” hold true this year? Find out by keeping track of lion days (cold, winter-like days) and lamb days (warm, spring-like days) during your morning meeting or calendar and weather time.  Each day, discuss the weather and decide if it is a lion day or a lamb day.  Hang up the appropriate animal.

You can display the results several ways:

Graph – Create a wall graph using the Lion Days and Lamb Days headers.  Each day place a lion or lamb marker under the appropriate heading.

Meaningful Math – I love using the graph and calendar for meaningful math practice during morning meeting.  We discuss our results and practice greater than less than, more or less, comparing numbers, tally marks (we keep a tally each day of how many lion days and how many lamb days).

If you would like to use this activity in your classroom it is available FREE in my Teachers Pay Teachers store HERE.  You receive a Lion Days header, a Lamb Days header, lion and lamb markers, a Lion Days Lamb Days chart, and calendar cover ups (lion and lamb).
