Illustrated Nature Scavenger Hunt


This is a fun and easy outdoor activity for ages K-5. The pictures make it easy to understand and clue students into where to look for wildlife. The hunt motivates students to look closer at their surroundings so that discoveries can be made that otherwise would have been missed. Can be done on a forest walk or in a wooded park next to school.
