Internet Scavenger Hunts

We are aware that some of these scavenger hunts include dead links. We are repairing those links as we find replacements, but we advise you to check each hunt's links before using the activity with your students.

To make it easier for teachers to search our archive of Internet Scavenger Hunts, we have reorganized them by month. Click a month below for Internet Scavenger Hunts that are appropriate for that month. Click the "Anytime Scavenger Hunts" link to search out Internet Scavenger Hunts that might be used at any time during the year.
