Scavenger Hunt

Activity

An internet scavenger hunt where students have to search the facts or clues to solve a problem posed during the class. They can be provided with resource websites they have to go visit (guided scavenger hunts) or be allowed a free-for-all.  The lesson involves students answering a problem and showing how and where they went to find the answers.

Goals & Objectives

Identify how the activity aligns with student learning objectives (SLOs).

The goals or objectives can vary, if it is used as an ice-breaking activity, the goal may be as simple as to let students have fun and search for a given topic. In more advanced activities, they might need to keep track of where they visited, what they found, and how it helps solve the problem posed in class.
