Describe spring in one word?
In Spring, the days get longer, the weather gets warmer and the flowers start to bloom. Animals start to come out from hibernation and the trees will have new leaves and blooms. It's a time to celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of a new season!
The Arrival of Spring
Photosynthesis: The process by which plants use energy from the sun to make their own food. Pollination: The process by which pollen from the male part of the flower is transferred to the female part of the flower, allowing for the creation of new seeds. Metamorphosis: The process of transformation from an immature form to an adult form, which many insects undergo during the spring months.
The spring season marks the start of the migration of many species of animals and birds. The first day of spring is called the vernal equinox, which means 'equal night' in Latin. Some cultures believe that the first day of spring marks a time for spiritual renewal and rebirth.
