I have used this photo scavenger hunt for years as an optional/alternative assignment for my students. Students can travel in groups, with a parent, or go out on their own, but they MUST be in each picture to receive credit. Goal: To take the student's experience of the American Civil War out of the classroom and into the community.
*Note: This would be an awesome Amazing Race activity for adults! Give each group two hours and give a prize to your first group back. So fun!
