connecting literacy to nature

dandelion 2009 02(1) Looking for a fun way to connect science and reading? Why not head out for an alphabet nature-scavenger hunt. All you need is a pencil, paper and maybe a camera. And a willingness to look at things a variety of ways.

For example, would you call this a “dandelion” for D? or would you see it as “fluffy” for F or “seeds” for S?

This activity is good for your brain because it makes you observe things more closely, and think about how you name/classify things. Check out Alphabet Scavenger Hunt over at Archimedes Notebook for some more ideas.
