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.
