Get your students excited about science by sending them outdoors on a science scavenger hunt! The concepts and vocabulary for this activity were taken from second grade Next Generation Science Standards. Instructions prompt students to find the items on a list, such as a seed, a mineral, or something an animal needs, and collect evidence of their finds either in baggies or by making drawings as indicated on the scavenger hunt sheet.
In this lesson, students learn more about Earth Day as they complete a WebQuest (Internet Scavenger Hunt) to research some questions about the holiday and the environmental conservation issues that it involves. Next, they choose a related topic of interest and research it in more depth to create a poster using software available on classroom computers or Web 2.0 tools. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Fun-Facts-about-Earth-Day-WebQuest-Poster-Activity-2400976
