Nature Scavenger Hunts
Learning to look at nature more closely or differently can teach a person many things. Try using one of these scavenger hunts to enhance your walk in the woods. They can be used as a teaching aid or developed into a learning worksheet for the classroom. Or, just plain used for fun.
In Florida, any time of the year is a good time to look for seeds but, in the Spring, you will often find a variety of seeds such as pine, Spanish needle, spiderwort, salt bush and more. Learn about the adaptations used by plants to have their seeds spread across the landscape from hitchhiking to parachuting.
Spring time is a special time of the year when things are blooming, animals are looking for mates, birds are nesting and trees are putting out new leaves. See how many indications of spring you can find.
TLNC is excited to share the Outside for 5 initiative, a call to action to get students outside for at least 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
Studies show that learning outside can improve language arts, math, and science skills. So let's come together, get out of the classroom, and learn outside! Click on the link above to take the pledge and learn more about the Outside for 5 initiative.
