March Calendar: Will the weather be a lion or a lamb?
Students like to record the weather in changeable March, and try to predict if it will come in and or go out like a lion or lamb. Of course, they will be right whichever way the month ends. They will say they knew all along. So if the weather is lovely, a lamb is placed in the calendar square that day. If it is windy, rainy, or snowy, a lion number is used. That is why there are two sets of numbers, just in case the entire month is only a lion or a lamb. That happened one year, every day was a lamb and there wasn’t much excitement. But usually, the weather is interesting during March.

The students will enjoy predicting the weather and will probably tell you they “knew” it would be nice or not outside! Here is the student record keeping printable.
