KS1 & 2 Woodland identification treasure hunt.

KS1 & 2 Woodland identification treasure hunt. Two A4 pages of images and labels for pupils or teachers to drag or cut out and place on the treasure hunt template in preparation for a visit to the woodlands. Images include common flowers, leaves, wildlife, insects and features found in British woodlands. Select up to 7 images per child/group from the image bank prior to the visit depending on what you hope to see or vocabulary you hope to develop. Pupils tick the tally box when they spot the image on the walk. Pupils can analyse the data after the visit and look for patterns and ask follow up questions eg types of trees growing in a specific place and why? Very helpful for group or individual targeted differentiation.
