Fall Scavenger Hunt Ideas

The other fall scavenger hunt idea helps students learn about the huge variety of leaves around them by helping them to find and identify 7 common trees.

  • Aspen Leaf are oval and turn lime green or yellow in the fall. You fan find the Aspen tree by observing the bark of the trunk. The white bark will feel smooth and bear scars where branches have come off. The bark on younger trees will be a silvery-gray or yellowish shade of gray.
  • Beech Leaf is dark green and leathery. The leaf shape is round to heart-shaped. The leaves turn golden in the fall. Every few years, a beech tree will make small brown nuts called beech nuts that a lot of small animals enjoy eating.
  • Juniper Leaf is an evergreen – meaning the green bristles will always be green, even in cold, snowy weather. Junipers grow well in shallow, rocky soil with their roots often aboveground. Junipers can grow as a low, spreading shrub or as an upright tree.
  • Maple Leaf are large with a distinct many-pointed shape. Maples are one of the most beautiful trees in the fall with their brilliant red and orange leaves! Maple trees produce flowers and fruit in the spring. The wood from maple trees is very sturdy and for this reason it is often used to build furniture and even musical instruments!
  • Oak Leaf can be yellow, red, orange, or any mix of those colors. The oak tree is sturdy and wide. The tree has a gnarled look, with each of the branches kinked and snaking outwards.
  • Pine Leaf is also called pine needles and is always green. Because they always have their leaves they are great for privacy, slowing wind, and protecting animals in the winter. Kids love to connect pine cones that fall the the ground in the fall; these are actually giant seeds!
  • Spruce Leaf come from an evergreen tree. The spruce tree has a conical shape and their leaves are also called needles.
