Pre-Opening Activity

Square Foot Survey


Give each boy a magnifying glass, a pencil, paper, and a 4-foot long loop of string. Have him lay out the loop into a shape on the grass (square, circle, triangle—it doesn't matter). Have him use the magnifying glass to find as many "critters" as he can in his area and write down or draw pictures of what he saw. If you can get a book from the library on bugs, have the boys look up some that they saw.
