Pocket Scavenger Challenge

Definition of a scavenger (according to Keri Smith):

Scavengers go on adventures no matter where they are, they notice the ground beneath their feet and prowl the world looking for treasures near and far.  They see beauty in simple items, when sometimes others do not.  Scavengers are always prepared to collect!  Does this sound like you?  Register and pick up your copy of "The Pocket Scavenger" and virtually meet and share your findings with other like minded collectors!  The book is full of great ideas of things to look for and document.  We will meet on 3 occasions to share what we've collected!

During the virtual meetings, plan on sharing up to 5 items listed in the book, where and when you found them and the story behind your treasures!  You can always join and see what others have found, too.  It will be fun to share our discoveries! 

Grade 6 & up, space is limited!

Pocket Scavenger Challenge

Definition of a scavenger (according to Keri Smith):

Scavengers go on adventures no matter where they are, they notice the ground beneath their feet and prowl the world looking for treasures near and far.  They see beauty in simple items, when sometimes others do not.  Scavengers are always prepared to collect!  Does this sound like you?  Register and pick up your copy of "The Pocket Scavenger" and virtually meet and share your findings with other like minded collectors!  The book is full of great ideas of things to look for and document.  We will meet on 3 occasions to share what we've collected!

During the virtual meetings, plan on sharing up to 5 items listed in the book, where and when you found them and the story behind your treasures!  You can always join and see what others have found, too.  It will be fun to share our discoveries! 

Grade 6 & up, space is limited!
