E.T A LOCAL WAY OF LEARNING
Title: ALPHABET OBSERVATION HIKE

Author: Eulalie R. Rivera Elementary School Environmental Education Team

Grade Level: K-l

Concepts: Disciplines:
2. Ecosystem Language Arts
Arts

Objective:

Along a given area, children will find different things whose names start (and/or end) with a
letter of the alphabet and they will either, correctly say the name, check the alphabet box, and
write the name in the box, or draw a picture of the thing in the box.

Rationale:

Be learning the alphabet and relating it to things found in a natural area--which knows, but it
might be the beginning of another Ranger Noble Samuel! Anyway, it could be fun and
learning at the same time.

What can I find that begins with...

1. I will show it to the teacher and put a big "X" in the right box.
2. I will try to write the correct name in the box.
3. I will draw a small picture of it in the box.

Materials needed:

Alphabet worksheet pencils or crayons.
(Pieces of cardboard or a large notebook could serve as a firm written surface).

Directions:
Children will carry their alphabet worksheet, pencil or crayons with them while walking
through the assigned area (playground if at school; beach, park, or on a field trip). When
discovering an object whose name begins with a letter of the alphabet, the children will either
write the name of the object or draw a picture of it in the appropriate box on the alphabet
worksheet. Example--"I saw an ant!" (Name or picture goes in alphabet worksheet box "A").A
variation to help with difficult letters (X or Z) is to allow them to use names that end with such
a letter.
