What do you think of when you think of spring? Warmer, longer days? Flowers blooming? Easter? Green grass? Eggs hatching? I think of all of those things (plus allergies!), but I thought I’d highlight turtles here.
Turtles are officially reptiles, characterized by a shell that protects it. They lay eggs on land, but many species live near water. Here are some links to check out for additional information:
Supplement your study of turtles with a nature walk. See who can be the first to spot a turtle, its nest, or eggs. Have your children draw pictures of the turtles you see on your walk. Enjoy your nature studies!

Ah that just made me nostalgic. We raised three painted turtles for about 5 years. They sat in a tank next to my kitchen sink and provided me with an amazing amount of amusement considering they were turtles!
