The first day of spring is Thursday, March 20, and is generally considered to land on the vernal equinox in the northern hemisphere. Spring lasts from the vernal equinox (in March) to the summer solstice (in June). Spice up the learning and make the most of the seasonal change with some spring lessons and activities!
This ad supported website was started in 1996 as a hobby by Jennifer Jensen and then she provided links to teacher resources on the internet. In 1998 she and her husband began to create their own resources and offer them free to teachers and parents. The Teacher’s Corner has continued growing and evolving and has maintained the goal to remain free and provide useful tools for teachers and parents.
