Thank you for purchasing the Life Under Rocks Research Sheets and Scavenger Hunt. This engaging and hands on activity is the perfect addition to your study of rocks.
Included in this packet you will find:
- 5 Life Under Rocks Research Sheets- Snails, Ants, Centipedes, Earthworms, Pillbugs
- Life Under Rocks Scavenger Hunt
I have to admit-- I was not at all thrilled to study rocks. I figured that it would be a dry, boring, and utterly unengaging unit. However, I had to set my bias aside and find a way to make it something my daughter would learn from and enjoy.
This packet was born from that. To my pleasant surprise, this wound up being an activity that both of us were actively engaged in. It was fun, yet informative, which is something I strive for in everything we do.
There is one research sheet dedicated to five main creatures that you will find under rocks. Each sheet contains a variety of questions and topics to help your students learn more about the creature. There is also a spot to draw the creature as well.
I think the true highlight, however, is the Life Under Rocks Scavenger Hunt. This activity gets your class outside as they hunt for life under rocks. They will keep a running tally of the creatures they find. The list contains a few more creatures than you’ll find on the research sheets. Plus, there are extra blanks to write any additional creatures you may find.
Do the scavenger hunt once or do it several times. The results will likely always vary, so it will always be a new experience. This would even be a fun take home activity for students to do with their family.
Thank you again for your purchase. I hope you enjoy the Life Under Rocks Research Sheets and Scavenger Hunt as much as I do.
