This activity uses active movement to get your students to hunt for mittens and gloves that are camouflaged. It is a simple way to connect your students with nature. It will also beat the winter doldrums.
I am the Program Director for an environmental classroom and this game is always a favorite with the students and the teachers.
You will use Jan Brett's book The Mitten as inspiration to find mittens that are hidden in the snow.
There are also some worksheets provided to facilitate a discussion on camouflage prior to heading outside.
A complete supply list and thorough instruction on how to conduct this simple activity are included. It is one you will use year after year.
