In this resource, you will find fun ways for your students to interact in your school garden. And if you do not have access to a school garden, these activities can be easily adapted to your schoolyard. Children use their senses to search for texture, smells, colors, and size. Using task cards, student search the garden or schoolyard for interesting items and write or draw their findings on a recording sheet. This is a great activity to use when pairing older and younger students. The older student reads the card and the younger student helps with the search.
The color word black lines encourage students to look through the garden or schoolyard for natural items that show the colors of the rainbow. A recording sheet is included for students to show their results. Color photographs of flowers can be used either outside or in the classroom for a rainbow color scavenger hunt.
