Turn one game into even more educational activities with these additional gameplay ideas. 

👁 Same But Different

Challenge students to access their critical thinking skills. As a whole class or in small groups, ask students to compare the items they were asked to find outside, listing specific differences and similarities.

For example:

Which things start with the same letter?

Which things are the same colour?

Which things fly?

Which things grow on the ground?

Which things are in the air?

Which things need food to live?

🌲 Nature Words Brain Buster

As a small group or full class, challenge your students to think of as many other nature words as they can. Have them shout out words (or call on students) while you write their suggestions on a smartboard, whiteboard, or another projection device. Then have students pick 3 words and draw a picture of each.

📚 Book Scavenger Hunt

Can’t go outside? Have students look through books to find the items on their sheets.
