My daughter and I went on a nature walk this morning and it occurred to me that my focused outdoor science scavenger hunts might be helpful to families looking for engaging science activities during this time of remote learning.

These were originally written for school use, but I’ve modified the directions slightly for use at home.

These 4 scavenger hunts designed for upper elementary are taken from my Out the Door to Explore resource. They require no prep, just some space outdoors.
