About the activity
Head outdoors to a place where children have the opportunity to spot different wildlife – the countryside or a local park, for example, or even the back garden. Ask children to look around – what animals and insects can they see? Get them to take a long look in different directions and make notes of their observations. Are there creatures in the soil and in the grass? On the leaves of bushes? In the trees? In the sky? They could explore different areas and habitats, and compare their fascinating finds.
