I Want to be a Super Teacher


Use this FREE Classroom Scavenger Hunt activity in your 2nd or 3rd grade classroom during the first week of school to familiarize students with the supplies and learning areas in your classroom (Tissues! Glue! Bandaids! Library!), PLUS get them some much needed around the room time on one of those crazy back to school afternoons.

This freebie includes a PowerPoint with editable scavenger hunt pages for you to customize for your own classroom. The fonts are embedded, so you should be able to easily edit, print, and go!

1. Edit pages 3-4 to customize the items in your classroom you want students to "hunt" for. These can be classroom supplies (bathroom passes) or learning areas (carpet/easel).
2. Cut out the numbers on pages 5-6 and tape them on the items around the room you want to highlight. If you do this after school, students will come the next day and start wondering what these mysterious numbers are for. Intriguing!
3. Show students how to "hunt" for items and write down the item number by the item label on the scavenger hunt sheet.
4. Come up with an "extra credit" fun question about your room for the kidlets who finish a bit early.
5. Make copies for your students and get hunting!
