Eco-Activity: Just poking around!


Just Poking Around

The red knot is a shorebird that uses its long beak to poke into the sand to feel for delicious morsels of food. They carefully search the shore, never checking the same spot twice! 

Cut out the red knot’s food cards, and lay them face down on a surface. Take turns flipping two cards over. If the cards match, the player collects the cards and goes again! If they do not match, they are turned face down again and the play passes to the next player. The game ends when the last pair has been picked up and the winner is the player with the most pairs!
