Nature Scavenger Hunt

This past week we went on a fun nature scavenger hunt! I knew my son would love it - he loves to be outside and loves the woods. I found this free printable from Five Little Chef's.
We own woods right behind our house so that was the perfect setting for our scavenger hunt. 
I was thinking about how you could adapt this activity for the classroom - once a teacher, always a teacher. In my previous school, we had an amazing Nature Trail that would be great for an activity like this.
 
 
We found lots of items on our list - something rough (plant) and something smooth (rock).
 
 
We found different types of leaves, a Y-shaped and odd shaped twigs, and pinecones.
 
 
 
We also found something yucky....two ticks on my son at the end of the night. Eeeekkkk!
 
We had fun doing our nature scavenger hunt!

  1. Nothing like getting out into nature and brining home with you! I'm guessing you had no interested in keeping those two ticks as pets!! Yikes!
