Hands-on Grammar Activity for Kids: Go on a Noun Hunt!

My 1st Grader has been learning about Sentence types, and most recently nouns.  The curriculum we have been using this year suggested going on a noun 'scavenger' hunt, and that is just what we did!

This activity was so fun!  He loved the 'scavenger' hunt part of the activity; adding in some type of 'game' element to learning makes learning much more hands-on!


So, grab some post it notes and go on a noun hunt!  I wrote several different nouns on the post it notes and 'hid' them around the house.  We walked the house singing this song/ chant:

We are going on a noun hunt
Person, place, or thing....
Oh look, a ______ (place)!

please ignore the ginormous pile of laundry you see ; ) 

Once  my son found the post it note, he grabbed it and put it on a piece of paper to help us sort through all our nouns.
Do you have any fun ways to learn about nouns?   Please share!

I'd love for you to follow along so you never miss out on one of our fun activities we share at School Time Snippets!
