Seed Scavenger Hunt

I’ve encouraged the students to go on a “Seed Scavenger Hunt” and bring back their findings in a little baggie by Tuesday, May 21.  They might freely explore their yard or go on a walk and get a close up look of different flowers and plants.  A “Sock Walk” is a fun way to pick up “hitch hiker” seeds: put an old, oversized sock over your shoe and walk around outside, brushing up against plants and see if you collect anything.  If an outdoor scavenger hunt isn’t possible, they could look for different seeds in their kitchen (bird seed, sunflower seeds, nuts, beans, wheat…)  Have fun hunting!
