Walk through woods to find deadly mini-beasts
Magnifying glasses, tubs, flourescent jackets for walking, whistle
Introducing this as a Challenge from Steve Backshall enahnces the experience and motivation for the kids. Using the image of Steve from the Wild Cards is a great way to connect. Whilst there is no unique wild card for this Deadly 60 walk, it is a combination of Steve's ideas. The kids seemed to be doubly excited at the mention of Naomi too! Asking the kids to put their hand up if they recognise the picture of the man starts to generate a buzz of excitement.
