creative treasure hunt lends itself PERFECTLY to getting kids
excited within a classroom setting. Themed treasure hunts
can also add a new dimension to your themed unit - people
remember more of that they DO than any other way! Follow these
helpful tips to engage the children in new and exciting ways
within a treasure hunt activity format.
* Remember, a treasure hunt doesn't have to be completed all
at once. Different clues can be released throughout a day,
week or month! In this way, a single activity can build the
excitement within the classroom as your students progress
on the hunt. Our treasure hunt puzzles packages allow for
this kind of versatility as each puzzle comes with its own
set of clues.
* Group your students in smaller teams to promote group problem
* To really build the excitement of your themed hunt, try
having a letter sent to your classroom from one of the characters
sending them on the hunt in the first place. This can be done
several days BEFORE the hunt/adventure even begins to really
drum up the excitement!
* Offer clues to the treasure hunt as rewards to the class
for good behavior, academic achievement on a test, etc.
* They can also be great for family day events and especially
* Teams can purchase a starter sheet to get them going on
the hunt. The final destination of the hunt can be a hidden
location where teams that finish submit their names into a
raffle for a donated prize. The participants will have fun
and the prize is bonus!
* Have local sponsors pay for the opportunity to have their
business advertisements printed on the BACKsides of all your
clues and maps! This is a great way to earn some extra income
beyond the participation ticket prices.
