Ladybugs, squirrels, and bees, oh my! Spring is a great time to explore the outdoors and natural world around us. Following Ben and Holly, stars of the preschool show on Nick Jr., students are encouraged to have big adventures in their own little kingdom. Along the way, students will learn about spring plants and animals and the importance of Earth Day, while engaging in imaginative play through arts and crafts and other fun activities.

Students will:

  • Identify and describe their natural or classroom environments
  • Learn about Earth Day and why the environment is important
  • Be encouraged to work in pairs or teams to foster teamwork and friendship
  • Engage in arts and crafts and coloring



Lessons will incorporate themes of teamwork, friendship, springtime, and Earth Day to encourage students to explore the natural world around them.
