Barefoot Description

It's time to connect with nature, get those shoes off, and explore our senses with barefoot adjectives. For this activity students will wander around your outdoor space (which has been carefully checked for sharp objects and risk assessed using our risk assessment tool!) barefoot while exploring their senses and thinking of adjectives, similes, and metaphors to best describe what it feels like.

It's most effective if you can provide a space with a variety of textures (wet, hard, soft, bumpy, etc.).

This resource contains differentiated sheets to include adjectives but also figurative language for your older students. Barefoot adjectives is also great as a hook to poetry - some fantastic poems can come from the descriptions they produce.
