A scavenger hunt is a game where each player (or each team of players) gets a list of items that they need to find. The winner is either the one who finds all the items fastest or the one who finds the most items in a limited period of time. The game gives a boost to observational skills, and since many scavenger hunts are held outdoors, provides a great incentive to get out and about.
In addition to that, Math in Nature scavenger hunt presents two educational aspects. As per its name, players get to practice their knowledge of math and nature.
There are four scavenger hunt lists in this pack:
1 -- General nature math scavenger hunt (basic observation of nature counting)

3 -- How many petals? (the number of petals that different flowers have—counting and statistics)
4 -- What shape of leaf? (variation in leaf shapes and how they correspond with geometrical shapes)
