Will March Come in Like a Lion or Lamb?

Tomorrow we're going to predict whether March will come in like a lion or a lamb. I have three activities I like to do with this.

Firstly, I have the kids write their prediction and corresponding weather description. Eg., "I think March will come in like a lamb. March will be sunny with only a few clouds. It will feel warm and we won't need to wear our coats outside."

Then we complete a class-sized graph. The heading is "Will March Come in Like a Lion or a Lamb?". I've used this beautiful lettering.

 Then the children colour and print their name on the appropriate graphic to glue onto the graph.

Later in the day they make paper plate lion or lamb faces (depending on their prediction).
