Activity #5 KOL – Using Your 5 Senses On a Nature Scavenger Hunt
We hope you are staying well and safe and that you have been enjoying getting reconnected to nature with our outside activities.
This next one will take some help from you. It is called Using Your 5 Senses On a Scavenger Hunt.
A scavenger hunt is a game where you are sent to look for certain items on a list. You do not have to collect the items, just check the name of the item when you find it.
What you must do before you begin is copy the list of items to find on your 5 Senses Scavenger hunt.
