We're Going on a Nature Hunt!

Our kindergartners were busy using their sense of sight this week during our science unit on the 5 senses. After making our binoculars out of construction paper and yarn (to hang around our necks), I created an observation journal for our nature hunt. The observation journal has pages to record all of the bugs, cloud shapes, plants, trees, and other interesting things seen on our nature hunt.

The children were so excited to go on their nature hunt! We saw butterflies, ladybugs, bumblebees, flowers, tall trees, bluebirds, a birdhouse, a plane flying over, a boat, and clouds shaped like a horse and a race car. FUN! It was such an amazing way to spend our afternoon recess.

Here is the observation journal I created for our awesome nature hunt...

Each one of the pages will print to make two journals... click here to download

This activity was such a wonderful way to bring science out of the classroom, and give the children the opportunity to explore all of the nature on the school grounds with their sense of sight.
