This was one of those pages.
It explains that a detective may collect things in order to document their research. So that's what you're instructed to do: Collect things from your immediate environment.
Now I started out intending to just grab things from around the house, taking 'immediate environment' to mean the area around the chair where I sit to fill in my book. But then I did the second part of the activity which was to find out the meaning of 'naturalist'.
The cliff notes answer is:
Someone who studies natural history; someone who studies plants/animals in their natural habitat.
And I realised that I'd probably have to leave the house for this one.
I took advantage of the nice weather and the fact that autumn has struck with a vengeance and grabbed a bunch of leaves on the walk towards Kerrycroy.
I got a pretty nice selection and I think they're a good representation of the plants which grow around the estate. It's an accurate documentation of of my immediate environment. I've taped them all into my book; I was prepared to grab some litter as well to stick in but I only found an old Styrofoam cup. When the tourist season ends the amount of rubbish lying around the estate dramatically decreases.
What sorts of things do you think you would collect from your local area?
