Spring Writing Prompts About Flowers & Trees
Would you rather plant flowers or trees? Why?
This is a great way to talk about the benefits of different plants and what they can offer various locations and environments.
If you were a tree, where would you want to be planted? Why?
Why do you think many plants bloom in spring and summer?
This spring writing prompt is a great lead-in to various climates and growing conditions for plants. If you are planting in your classroom, this could be an introductory unit to the needs of a plant in order to grow!
Spring Writing Prompts About Animals
Write facts about butterflies.
You can use the 5 finger method for this (5 things I know), or a Can/Have/Are diagram (Butterflies can ______, Butterflies have ________, Butterflies are ________). You may also just ask students to list as many facts as possible. This is a great addition to any informational writing unit.
Would you rather be a caterpillar or a tadpole? Why?
I'm a sucker for a good ‘would you rather' question – and so are my kids! This specific spring writing prompt can lend itself to the discussion about life cycles, the similarities and differences between different stages of life, and so much more.
Why do you think worms are slimy?
Write 5 facts about worms.
Worms are always a fun conversation topic for students – and writing is no different. Again, these prompts make great introductory or pre-learning questions if you are just beginning a worm unit.
What are 2 similarities between caterpillars and worms? What are 2 differences?
Other Spring Writing Prompts

Draw and write about a way you take care of the Earth.
