Product Description
This Patriotic Scavenger Hunt is perfect at any time of the year, but especially when celebrating patriotic holidays such as Patriot Day, Veterans Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day or Independence Day. It works great as a Back-to-School activity or End-of-Year activity, too! If you teach summer school or do private tutoring, you'll find this especially easy to use. This no-prep activity also works well as part of your Emergency Plans or Substitute Plans, too!

Students hunt for task cards describing symbols of American values and historic significance, as well as National Holidays, institutions, and landmarks. If you already do a Citizenship Unit in Social Studies, this makes a very nice supplemental activity!

Scavenger Hunt cards include information on:

• Patriot Day
• Memorial Day
• Veterans Day
• Labor Day
• Independence Day
• Bald Eagle Symbol
• American Flag
• National Flower
• Uncle Sam
• St. Louis Gateway Arch
• Liberty Bell
• American Bison Symbol
• White House
• Statue of Liberty
• Mount Rushmore
• National Anthem
• National Colors
• National Tree
• National Motto
• The Great Seal of the USA

My students love scavenger hunts of any kind! Students attach their Scavenger Hunt Questions/Answers Sheet to clipboards, and the fun begins! Cards are hidden around the classroom, and students must search the room to find all twenty cards to correctly answer the text dependent questions on their Answer Sheets. We then come together as a class to review and discuss the answers. During the discussion, oftentimes students will have questions about some of the information presented on the cards, which sparks some great opportunities to dig deeper into any of the subjects. Students can research any of the card topics as an extension assignment, extra credit, or as an optional center activity.

Another option is to simply use the Scavenger Hunt as an activity for early finishers to work on throughout the week, as a Center Activity for either Reading or Social Studies, or as part of your Sub Plans.

Cards are “hidden” around the room “in plain sight.” All cards are located within a child’s eye view, so it’s not necessary for students to handle the cards. Of course, depending on your class, you might want to hide them in a few more challenging areas!

Simply print out the Scavenger Hunt Cards, cut, and laminate. I mount each card on to cardstock or construction paper before laminating to make them extra sturdy. They can be easily stored on binder rings, in baggies, or in a folder with the Question/Answer Sheets.

No Color Printer? No Problem! Students have just as much fun completing the Scavenger Hunt if the cards are printed in grayscale. In fact, printing them in grayscale makes them just a bit more difficult to find during the hunt! Saves a lot of ink, too!

These task cards can be used as traditional task cards or can be uploaded to either Schoology or Google Slides. It’s an easy way to incorporate technology into either your social studies or language art blocks. Have students access the task cards through either Schoology or Google slides, print out the recording sheets, and have them handy for whenever or however you choose to use them. No prep necessary, answer key included.

Included are:

• 20 Scavenger Hunt Cards
• Student Questions/Answers Sheets
• Answer Key
