Classroom Scavenger Hunts for Early Childhood

These scavenger hunts, specifically designed for the early childhood classroom, are a great way to get kids moving while demonstrating understanding of several different concepts. Includes scavenger hunts for these different skill sets: colors, textures, 2D shapes, 3D shapes, rhymes, beginning sounds, and functional pairs.

Students utilize their critical thinking skills as they find objects that match the criteria. Print on cardstock and laminate to have students use the hunts again and again!

Pre-readers will need some assistance to read items on some of the lists; however, graphics are included to help foster independence. Additionally, words used in the rhyming and beginning sounds hunts are all sight words or simple CVC words.

Scavenger hunts are all in black and white, with the exception of the color scavenger hunt, which is included in black and white and in color, to help pre-readers complete the hunt more independently.
