This FREEBIE activity includes Nature Scavenger Hunt and Describing checklists. There are colored and black & white versions of each checklist. If using the colored version, just print and laminate to easily use with dry erase markers. Make multiple copies of the black and white version and allow your students to use markers, crayons, or pencils.
Take your students on a “nature walk” (i.e. courtyard, picnic area, playground, etc.) Pair up your students and allow them to explore and find as many items as possible on the checklists marking off each one when found. This is a great opportunity to provide your students with clues as to where to find items, take turns, and talk about the items. After your ”nature walk”, give each student a copy of the Describing checklist. Ask students to describe the way each item looked (color, shape, size), smelled, felt, and/or sounded like. This is a great opportunity to work on expanding utterances, labeling, describing, categorizing, and more.
(This FREEBIE contains ONLY the Nature Scavenger Hunt checklists. Materials to be found on the nature walk are not included with this activity.)
I hope you find this activity fun and useful! As always, thank you for your support and FEEDBACK!
