Scavenger hunt

This Week

Day one

Find a variety of different objects. Then look for a puddle to test which objects float and which ones sink.

Day two

Find 10 things that are longer than your foot and 10 things that are shorter than your foot.

Day three

Go outside and take a picture of 10 things that are living and 10 things that are not living.

Day four

Draw an obstacle course with sidewalk chalk. Use different colours and write a challenge to your neighbours to participate.

Day five

Count how many steps it takes to get to your nearest park bench. Once you get there, stop and listen to hear three different bird species. Then count how many hops or skips it takes to get back to where you started.

Day six

Collect 5 items you think will float. Find the nearest bridge over a body of water. Drop your objects into the water and see which one flows fastest under the bridge. Run to the side of the bridge to see.

Day seven

Pick up 5 pieces of garbage. Be sure to wear gloves and/or use a stick or other apparatus so you don’t touch the garbage with your hands. Ask your parents first to make sure it is safe to pick up.
