Washington DC Scavenger HuntUse this scavenger hunt booklet to capture memories, increase learning, and further engagement as you explore Washington DC.  For each memorial, museum, or historical place, the scavenger hunt engages the students with questions and objects to find.

Encourage students to take photos during their scavenger hunt so they can remember their experience! Tweet photos to @ScholasticaInc or post on our Facebook page during the adventure. We love to share their findings with other awesome explorers.

Points are allocated for each object or question. At the end of the trip, students can add up all their points from the completed challenges. There are worksheets throughout to tally the points.

    Hi, Thanks for the Wash DC Scavenger hunt! Any chance you have the solutions? It would save me time as I’m correcting the forms and adding up points. Thanks!

    Hi Wendy, dear scholasticatravel team,

    I have had my students do the hunt, too – and it would save an incredible amout of time having sample solutions to find somewhere.

    I am well aware that this would give other students the chance to read these as well. So would you mind sending them to me?

    My school address is SiemersB (a) … KGS Stuhr being the school I am working at.

    That would help a lot!

    Kind regards,
    Bjoern Siemers
