 Today we have geared up to go on a treasure hunt. We  will be searching for treasure. Not just any treasure but Nouns. What are nouns you say? Well on this journey we will find the answer. Nouns are right in front of you and you may not even know it. When you find a noun that you really like, I want you to make a drawing of it  so that we can see what nouns you may have stumbled upon on this journey. I also want you to place the drawings on a map of the places that we visited on our hunt for nouns. Are you ready ? Let's get started. If you need assistance in finding nouns here are some good websites  to help  you on your journey.
