But today I decided to try a scavenger hunt as Meg wanted to study something. The kid would go to school seven days a week if she could!
So I made up a scavenger hunt for the garden. It's too early in the season to have a lot to look at but we managed ok. I had made little labels for the seedlings in advance.
The girls at work.
And the work?
The top line says 'what does it taste like?' and they drew happy/ sad faces depending on what they thought of the flavour of the herbs.
Then they drew the seedlings and finally they each had a planter to fill up with soil and choose seeds to plant and then note what they planted. I gave lots of writing space for lots of different seeds but they both chose to plant only one thing- Amy, lettuce and Meg, peas.
It was quite fun and took quite a while to get through as they had to search and read the labels to find each plant as well.
I've already had requests for more 'studying'.
