Children bring these field trip checklists along on a nature walk or field trip, and mark off each item they find. You can also use these after the field trip as a recall activity. Clip the page to a clipboard for each child if you are using them on-the-go, or if you don’t have enough clipboards available, staple the sheet to a piece of construction paper or card stock paper. Since many children typically want to leave no picture unmarked, they might enjoy drawing an X over the pictures of things they did not see.
These are some ways your children might enjoy marking the checklist:
- draw a check mark over the picture
- circle the picture
- stamp each picture with a bingo marker
- stick a dot sticker over the picture
