On the first day of spring sunrise and sunset are about 12 hours apart everywhere on Earth and the hours of daylight and night are almost equal.
In spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt toward the celestial equator — the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth's equator — from south to north. Day length increases as the season progresses.
Warming temperatures cause plants to "spring forth," giving the season its name.

The Teacher's Fund is proud to donate books of every kind,
including dictionaries and thesauruses.
While computers may be a great resource as well,
it's fun to see students enjoying the discovery of
new words simply by opening a book and turning
its pages. You're welcome, Bethany. Enjoy!
