Scavenger hunts are a fun activity that get students outside, working together, having fun, and running around. It is a novel activity that offers choice and independence – they get to split up into groups, choose where they go first, etc. It also offers some fun competition and can be a great workout. You can alter the sample scavenger hunts below to make it applicable to your school/area. For more fun, let the students create their own scavenger hunts and then have their classmates complete them. Have fun!
