This lesson encourages students to work in cooperative teams to complete the World Religion Scavenger Hunt Game as they compete to achieve 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. Student will love the lesson and will have fun learning. It is not simply a scavenger hunt, but a scavenger hunt game!

Students have 7 sections to complete: Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, Judaism, and Islam.
Students will complete one section at a time, and once they have correctly answered the section they are working on, they will be allowed to move on to the next section. They are given two opportunities to answer the questions correctly, earning points for each correct answer.

This lesson requires instructor active participation throughout the entire process as he/she will be continually assessing the students answers to give them points and the "go-ahead" to move to the next section.

Student will be moving about the room and actively engaged in the learning process.

Important Note: a Word document of the game has been included in the chance that you would like to change some of the questions to meet your needs. Note that based on the version of Word that you have, the original formatting may change. You will need to reformat in this case. This is why TPT encourages us to use only PDF formatting so as not to cause issues for the purchaser. However, I realize that it would be helpful if you, the purchaser, has the ability to change questions to correspond with what you wish your students to learn. You can find the Word document within the Zip file.
