Use the Spring Spotter Activity Sheet to get the children outside applying their maths while they connect with nature and have some fun and practical leanring time. This is a fabulous task to help your children connect with nature and to also creatively look at colours.
Here are some top tips to apply your Spring Spotter Activity Sheet:
- Why not collect some of the items you find up and make an art picture afterwards. The Artful Parent Blog has some great art ideas for this.
- Apply sticky back plastic to a piece of unused card and attach different shades of nature on there. Tear them up small and add onto it.
- Compare colors from season to season. What colours do we see more in Aurumn than Winter?
Remember there are many charities out there looking after our wildlife, it is time we all take notice and understand the importance of caring for nature. The RSPB, Wildlife Trust and Woodland Trust all play major parts in helping with this so do spend your time visiting their sites and doing your bit.
You could also help nature yourself by reducing your waste, leaving some natural areas alone so animals can make habitats, feed them. Use porridge oats and lard for bird seed and put our meat for the noctornal animals. Outdoor learning has so many benefits and we can give back too.
