Garden Scavenger Hunt

We begin the year with exploration of the garden via a simple scavenger hunt. Scavenger hunts are a great way for students to observe different features in the garden, to explore the changes that happend over the summer, to practice their sketching skills, to use their different senses, and to get re-aquatinted with the garden space. In addition, It is a great chance for instructors to get to know their students better, such as by seeing what vegetables they like to eat at home, favorite colors, and their opinions of the best and worst smelling plant in the garden. Here are some photographs of our 3rd graders on their hunt as well as an example of the worksheet that can be easily made and adjusted for any grade level.
