FREE SCIENCE LESSON – “Nature Themed Cootie Catcher! FREEBIE”

by Green Grubs

2nd – 5th Grade

A great introductory activity to a nature based or environmental topic…get silly with this Nature themed Fortune-Teller-Cootie-Catcher!

There are 8 challenges inside the Cootie Catcher (e.g. take nine steps backwards, drop to the ground and freeze until you see an insect! Can you name the insect? Name one thing you could do to help the environment – you can’t say pick up rubbish! Find 5 different types of leaves. Which tree or plant are they from?) This is also a good basic activity for teachers to use at the start of a topic to gauge children’s prior knowledge about general environmental matters— rove around and eavesdrop on their conversations before and during the challenge!

A blank template is also provided so your class can then go on to share their learning by creating their own nature themed cootie catcher…

This activity is also included as part of the following resource – check it out for more in depth learning around this subject!:
