Practice your tally counting
Take a sheet of paper outside and create a tally count of things you can see. This can be numbers of windows, benches, doors or even chimneys, or it could be number of people wearing white, blue, grey, green or any other colours you choose.
Decide on your subject to monitor and then record what you see using tally counting.
