Camouflage Day

This week I started teaching about plant and animal adaptations which is one of my favorite science units, so I hope to have several fun things to share over the next couple of weeks.  We started the unit by learning about camouflage, and to cap off the week we had Camouflage Day on Friday.

This is just a small group of my camo kids!  It ended up being an event for the entire grade level, and all of my former students were so jealous!

My students also hid butterflies around the room, and they colored butterflies, so that they would blend in to their “environment”.  This was such a fun activity, and since I teach two different groups of students, each group got to go on a butterfly hunt to try to find all of the hidden butterflies.

I was so impressed with their creativity, and both groups really grasped the concept of camouflage.

    Very cool! In the past I have done a similar activity with my kids, but we used scrapbook paper instead and glued it in to their adaptations lapbook. I like the idea of "hiding" them around the room–I'll have to use your idea when we get to that unit! Thanks!! 😀

    I L-O-V-E love this idea . . . and since imitation is the highest form of flattery I just wanted to let you know that my students will also be doing this activity next week. Thank you so much for sharing!!!
