This little outdoor challenge was the first of several in Travis’s school workbook: the goal was to find an item in nature corresponding to each letter of his name. What a perfect excuse to get outside for “recess” during home schooling!
Off we set on a gorgeous local trail and Travis very quickly spotted the first letter he needed: tree for T!
I asked him what letter was next, and so it went. Root was for R (as was rock!):
Acorns were for A, vines were for V, insects were for I, and sticks were for S.
This game gave simple purpose to our walk. If your child enjoys it, do the name of a sibling or parent, next!
