Nature Scavenger Hunt

Week Three of our Think Challenges

(Creative Thinking Activities)

Challenge your kids to think outside the box!

We’ve been having such lovely weather that it was time to send the kids outdoors for our next Think Challenge. I made a very open ended Nature Scavenger Hunt and sent the kids on their way!

You can download a copy of our Nature Scavenger Hunt here.

The kids had a great time with it!

LD found “something white” (the fungus in the picture below)

DD found “something hairy” (below)

 We all found lots of things that were alive: (salamander, slug, earthworm, ants, crayfish and termites)

After a while our Nature Scavenger Hunt was at an end and we just enjoyed being outdoors!

If you missed the previous Think Challenges we’ve done be sure to visit this post.

Join us next Friday for our next Think Challenge!

  • Photo Nature Hunt — I sent the kids out with cameras and had them take pictures of everything from a fence and stump, to another person’s hand and a flock of birds. 
  • I made another Second Nature Scavenger Hunt that is a bit more challenging for the kids this year (2013).  They spent close to three hours hunting for the creatures on this list… This second scavenger hunt is probably best near a creek/pond. We have one that runs through the back of our yard, so I had the kids try to find algae, a frog, toad or lizard, etc.
