Paper and pen, tape
The leader hides an envelope (the D’Juno!) that has information inside about something in our natural environment (see samples below). The object of the game is to use clues to discover the location of the envelope containing this new information about the outside world, thereby becoming the winner of the D’Juno Award!
After the D’Juno has been hidden, the leader plants a clue (often rhyming couplets) for all to read. If, after ten minutes, no one has located the envelope, the leader posts another clue. Clues continue until someone discovers the award.
SAMPLE CLUES: (Location of D’Juno is: taped to the back of a thermometer at the Weather Station).
