Tips For How To Use The Back To School Scavenger Hunt

Give your kids a clipboard to make moving around and checking their boxes easier. Even tie dry erase markers to the clipboards, so they don’t get lost. 

You can even break your students up into small groups to work on it so they can practice social skills! They may make some new friends along the way.

For those early finishers, consider having small prizes such as stickers, pencils, or fun erasers. 

And if something on this class scavenger hunt sheet is outside your classroom or the school, you can get creative!

Have them search through books to find an item. Or print out photos of objects and tape them or hide them somewhere, like in a desk drawer for them to find. 

And if you’re homeschooling, you can also get creative and do the same if you don’t have some of these items.

There are different ways to make it work with just a little creativity!
