Nature Scavenger Hunt...

Do you know what this picture is?
The weather seems to be cooling down slightly. I think I will take the girls to Lake Perris or somewhere like that to do this Nature Scavenger Hunt. Here's a list that I am going to give each of them. Of course, I will be posting pictures - =] Just thought I would post these now for anyone else homeschooling or just interested in doing something outdoors with your family. Naomi and Marco will like getting in on the action too, I'm sure.
1. Find something wet.
2. Look for something that is moving fast.
3. Find something green.
4. Find something that has branches but no leaves.
5. Find something hard.
6. Find something brown.
7. Look for something orange.
8. Find something that floats.
9. Find something pointy.
10. Look for something with cracks.
11. Listen for something noisy.
12. Find something with a strong smell.
13. Find something a deer could eat.

That sounds like so much fun. Maybe I'll do that when they are home from school in a week. By the way, is that a picture of a sunflower?

I guess sunflower, too!
What a fun activity. Can't wait to see what you and the kiddos find!

Great idea! I think I will use this idea (in a simpler version) for my daughter.

Is the picture a sunflower? Sure looks like the dried out sunflowers we have in the backyard! :)

Hey, Sherry, I have been reading your blog for quite sometime. I don't know if you remember me or not, but I am Melinda Fleming's sister, Liz Fleming Willhite. I have 3 children and I homeschool. Thought that this was a really neat idea. My kids love the outside. We just made an earthworm farm, and looking forward to seeing the earthworms tunnels in the soil. Any way, the pic is a sunflower.
