ABCDetective Classroom Scavenger Hunt


28 pages. Common Core State Standard RI.K1d
A great ice breaker for the first day of school and a fun way to find where things are located.  Teachers are freed up to do other tasks, while students are occupied in an easy, yet educational activity.


  • Large magnifying glass template to make scampering around the room a bit more fun and "detective-like".
  • Small magnifying glass template for locating and "framing" words, letters, shapes and numbers in books, charts, papers etc.
  • Two detective badges.
  • The ABCDe-tective treasure hunt list complete with picture icons.
  • 26 upper and lowercase alphabet cards.
  • Covers to make Itty Bitty books.
  • 38 word wall "read-around-the-room" word cards.  These can also be turned into another Itty Bitty book.
  • 38 picture cards.  Use these to play a Memory Match game, make pairs, put next to the words on the word wall, include in the Itty Bitty books.
  • 2 certificates of praise.

Be sure to check out the My School-Words Dictionary. It's the perfect activity for students to work on at their own pace, when they are done with the scavenger hunt, as the pictures and words match!
