Bradbury Challenges

While hiking with students, you can #challenge them to work their minds along with their bodies. Here are some ideas for some Bradbury Mountain Challenges.

  • Animal identification: Look for tracks or scat and try to identify the animal.
  • Plant identification: Try to identify plants by their leaves. Students can also pick up fallen leaves to study.
  • Photo story: Take pictures while you hike. When you return, use the Book Creator app to create a story about the trip. Your story can be fiction or nonfiction. For a great example of a wordless story using photographs, see Hank Finds an Egg.
  • Build a Fairy House or Gnome Home
