Vocabulary Scavenge

Using a challenging vocabulary, strategically distribute clues around the house that lead to a tasty treat. Choose multiple areas of learning (math, vocabulary, social studies, etc.) to use within your clue, revealing an answer that will lead your children to the next hiding place. Each new hiding place will hold a new challenge, until they reach the final destination. For vocabulary clues, have your kids use context clues within the hint to figure out each new word’s meaning, or for mathematical equations, have them put together a pattern that unlocks a code. Your clues are endless, and the reward will be well worth it to your kids!
