Online Scavenger Hunts

  • Use scavenger hunts with students in a variety of ways. They are a great way to introduce a new topic, generate motivation for a topic, or review a topic after it is taught! 
  • Scavenger hunts are guided searches so your students are not wasting time or visiting sites that you have not approved.  
  • Don't forget, you can include video and pictures in your hunt along with your questions!

Directions for publishing online using Google Docs...
1.  Create an account in Google so you have access to Google Docs.  Go to google.com and click the Sign In button in the upper right corner.  Then click "Create An Account Now".  Follow the steps to create your account... you can use any email address that you have, it does not have to be a gmail account.
2.  Once you are registered, sign into your new Google account.  Once you are signed in, click on "My Account" and find "Docs" under My Products.  Click on Docs.
3.  Once you are in Docs, click New, Document.  This will give you a clean word processing document.  If you created your scavenger hunt in Word, you can just copy and paste it into this document.  Or, you can just create your scavenger hunt right in Google Docs, if you prefer. 
4.  Once you have your scavenger hunt finished and ready to publish, save your work (File, Save).  Then click the Share button and choose "Publish as web page" then the "Publish Webpage" button and you will get a web address that links to your scavenger hunt!  It's that easy!:)
Feel free to contact me with any questions or if you need help with anything!!  Thank you for attending... I hope it was useful to you and that you will try one new way to use technology this year!   bmcroak@ppps.org
