As an introduction to our unit on the seashore, and the Chesapeake Bay in particular, we had a scavenger hunt at the beach. The boys were asked to gather 3 things that are evidence of plant life, 2 things that are evidence of animal life and 1 thing that is evidence that humans have been there. They could also pick up 1 non-living material. For the evidence of plants, they found driftwood, twigs, leaves, and seaweed. For evidence of animals, they found shells, feathers and bones. For evidence of humans being there, they found litter, a hair scrunchy and beach glass. For other non-living material they collected rocks and beach glass.
