A perfect back to school activity for the first week! This FREE classroom scavenger hunt is a simple way to introduce students to all of your classroom supplies and doubles as a fun around the room brain break activity during the first week of school.
Looking for a FREE activity for the first day(s) of school? Try this classroom scavenger hunt with your 2nd or 3rd grade kids.
This editable back to school activity is an easy way to introduce your students to classroom supplies and learning areas, PLUS it counts as a much needed brain break on one of those crazy back to school afternoons!
All you need to do is edit the free printable pages and add this idea to your FUN back to school activity pile for the beginning of the school year.
During the first week would you like to minimize questions such as:
“Missmith Missmith!” (This and “mom/grandma” with an embarrassed look, will be your official names from August to May)
“Where are the pencils?”
“Where is the paper?”
“Where are the Band-aids?”
Where are the tissues (this question is asked silently as a cute little eight year old stares at you while nastiness runs out his/her nostrils and close to his/her lip).
To avoid as many of these questions as possible, proactively teach students where all the important items are located in your classroom with this editable classroom scavenger hunt. It works perfectly as a day 2 afternoon activity, but can really be used anytime you start getting asked questions about where you keep snacks, band-aids, bathroom passes etc. Even if that’s in April. ( . . . sigh)
How long does this back to school activity take to prepare?
20 minutes max! It’s easy to do. Just customize the editable freebie pages (these come in an editable PowerPoint for quick editing) with the items in your classroom, cut & tape the included numbers on the items around your classroom, makes copies, and then you’re ready to get-those-kidlets-a-hunting.
