#STEAMSearch: It’s Spring!

Your days at home may seem long right now, but they can be filled with fun and creativity for your entire family and we want to help.

STEAMSearch: It's SpringEach week we will post a new STEAM-based scavenger hunt called a #STEAMSearch so your students can explore their world independently or with a sibling or you! 

Print out this week’s #STEAMSearch and start exploring! (Also available in Spanish)

SEARCH #1: HUNT FOR LEAVES!

Collect as many different kinds of leaves as your age! Are you 8? Collect 8 leaves! Are you 12? Find 12! 
BONUS! Lay them and take a picture OR draw them!
DIGI-KNOW? There are 40 different leaf shapes! (View them here!)
