Activity: The Great Scat-venger Hunt

We challenge you to get outside and look for garbage!

 

Step 1: Think of a place in your neighborhood that could use a good clean up. This could be a nearby park or playground or any other safe place in need of a good sprucing up.

Step 2: A good scavenger hunt needs a list of treasures (or trash in this case) to hunt for. Create a checklist of the different kinds of trash that you might find (e.g. soda cans, water bottles, wrappers, paper, plastic utensils, straws, etc.).

Step 3: Decide who is coming for the clean up and pick a day and time that works for all.

Step 4: Gather all of your pick-up supplies so you are ready on the day of the hunt.

Step 5: When the day arrives- get outside and start hunting, errr cleaning.

Step 6: Pat yourself on the back for a job well done!
