Adjective Scavenger Hunt
These two exercises get kids to practice looking and counting — as well as reinforcing what adjectives are. For a great extension activity, try graphing the different kinds of insects you found on your tally sheet– ants, moths, and more!
Insects have bilateral symmetry — which means if you draw an imaginary line through them, they are the same on both sides. Practice thinking about symmetry, shapes, and colors with this exercise.
