Have you heard the saying “March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb”?
The phrase refers to the weather in March (which, in some regions, starts out cold and ends warm). So where does “In like a lion, and out like a lamb” originate from? According to The Paris Review, the phrase was first recorded in the early 1700’s and may be linked to the Constellation of Leo rising towards Aries the Ram….. time honored folk-lore indeed.
Children love the discussion of lambs and lions in regards to weather patterns. Creating a graph or documenting the lion/lamb days on the calendar gives students a authentic reference for data gathering and recording.
I enjoy extending that data gathering into all areas of academia. I am excited to share with you the thematic unit, Lambs and Lions.
