In Like A Lion Lesson Plan

Homeschool Teacher - Lesson Plan & Newsletter
March 23, 2007

March comes in with many windy and raining days and at the end of March, it seems to get cool and nice weather outside.
Explain why people use the saying in like a lion out like a lamb
The saying above refers to the weather. If the weather is bad (cold and snowy) at the beginning of March, then the end of March (going out) will be calm (like a lamb). If the weather is mild at the beginning of the month, then it is said that the end of March will end with bad weather.

Are you more like a lion or a lamb? Draw a picture or write about which one is more like you and why.
