Spring is a great time to learn about plants and seeds. If you do a spring garden this would be a nice opportunity to do a unit study on seeds and plants!
There are so many fun science projects that you can do with seeds! I think it would be a lot of fun to do an entire unit study learning about seeds and how they sprout and grow, then finishing off with some science projects. There are so many different printables you can use in a unit study like this!
