Nature Play On Vancouver Island

Nature Kindergarten On Vancouver Island

Nature Loose Parts and Measurement


This fun nature math game was adapted from the book Messy Math by Juliet Robertson by Tiffany Qiu. Tiffany chose four nature objects and used the child's hand as the measuring tool. 

The children searched the area for a leaf as wide as their hand, a fir cone that fit their hand span, a stone the size of their thumb nail and a stick shorter than their hand. She included a small black and white sketch with each object. 

The children had great fun searching the forest for their activity and then checked in with an adult when done. Then the finished sheet was sent home so that they could talk about forest math with their families.

A really engaging activity that is easy to implement in the forest.
