One of the projects of our Science Curriculum is to go on a scavenger hunt. This past week we did just that. When we take the time to do this it always leaves me wondering why we don't go on these little adventures more often. It was nice and cool, and there was a lot to see. We didn't get everything checked off of the list. I told the children we will be back throughout the year and slowly, hopefully find everything on the list. We discovered some pretty wild flowers and talked about seed heads. So fun.
Do you see the well camouflaged critter?
This was my favorite wildflower. I have never seen one of these before. It is called a Spotted Touch-me- not (Spotted Jewel weed). Also formally called Impatiens capensis. Doesn't it look like a little cornucopia?
This is the front.
