You might think a treasure map just shows you where to find buried gold, but have you ever thought that there might be treasure all around you? Nature provides us with so many useful, beautiful things that are still valuable. What do you treasure in nature? Think about the smell of flowers, the sound of birds or rain falling, or the sight of dew drops in the morning. In this activity, you will create your own ‘natural treasures’ map.
This is a good activity for kids to complete independently.

Learning@Home from Cool Australia
Learning@Home resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources. The first are fun and challenging real-world activities for all ages, the second are self-directed lessons for upper primary and secondary students. These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
Cool Australia’s curriculum team continually reviews and refines our resources to be in line with changes to the Australian Curriculum.
