This product includes six different 12-question scavenger hunts. These differ from my usual style of scavenger hunts in that they do not have cards for the students to find and then answer. Each scavenger hunt is on one worksheet and students find their answers on the computer.
These scavenger hunts include questions about admission to statehood, state size, capital, nickname, population, flag, flower, largest cities, song, tree, neighboring states, highest/lowest point in elevation, famous persons, bird, and shape.
The last (# 6) is the most challenging scavenger hunt. Students will have to work harder to locate answers.
Answer keys for each scavenger hunt are included.
These are the two websites I relied on while creating the scavenger hunts. Students can use these for research: www.50states.com and www.theus50.com . When using either resource the students can search by state or by fact.
Another resource I discovered after completing the hunts is
https://kids.usa.gov/learn-about-the-states/index.shtml. It appears to be an excellent resource for each state and does not have the advertising that is found on the other two. It does not have all of the information available to answer all of the questions, but has a wealth of information available for state research.
