What educators are saying

Lots of fun when we used it multiple times during the school year (every time student groupings on campus changed).


A Back to School Scavenger Hunt is the perfect way to get to know your students and teach them the rules and procedures. Your students will love traveling around the classroom and school looking for clues to complete this hunt. The Back to School Scavenger Hunt includes 14 clues as well as a Recording Sheet and a Coding Sheet. The first clues will allow students to share a little about themselves. The last set of clues gets your students moving throughout the building. This allows them to see where things are located throughout the school AND learn the procedures and rules for each place that you visit.

What does this product include?
This scavenger hunt includes 14 poetry clues (in both color and black & white) leading students throughout the classroom and school building. It includes a Recording Sheet for students to record information about themselves as they follow the first set of clues. It also includes a Coding Sheet where students will have to solve the mystery code at the end of the scavenger hunt to earn a prize.

Who is this product geared towards?
The Back to School Scavenger Hunt would work for any primary classroom.

How can I use this product in my classroom?
Prior to doing this scavenger hunt with your students, copy and place the clues in your classroom and school building. (Directions are in the packet.) I like to provide my students with a prize at the end, so I purchase new pencils for each of my students. This is the perfect first day of school activity, but could be done at any point at the beginning of the school year.
