This activity has been created to engage with The Lost Words book by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris, which was created in response to the removal of nature words from the Oxford Children’s Dictionary.

It can be combined with the activities: Nature’s Opposites and Explore Like a Victorian for a full day session, or series of themed sessions around literacy in the outdoors (see links in activity sheet).
