This mini scavenger hunt will inject some math into your next nature walk. We had a beautiful family afternoon along a local trail, and I challenged Travis to find a few things of various sizes compared to something else along the way. You can vary your list, but here are a few ideas:
First up, he needed to spot something smaller than his fingernail. I thought he might find a bug, but he surprised me with this little pebble.
Longer than his arm? A stick!
A rock was bigger than his hand, and an acorn was smaller than his foot.
For the last one, he needed to spot something larger than a leaf. The leaf we found was cool all by itself, almost mitten-shaped!
What items do you find on your “size hunt”? Please share in the comments!
