Thanksgiving Internet Scavenger Hunt builds computer competency and research skills. Plus they’re fun! These can be used as stand-alone activities or races.

I use Thanksgiving Internet Scavenger Hunt with Google Classroom, but there are many platforms out there that you can use. If you are treating this as a race, make sure that there is a timestamp available.

This is a Thanksgiving Themed Paste-A-Pic Scavenger Hunt. Students copy and paste images from an internet search. It is broken into categories: History, Food, and Festivities. This reinforces the ability to search for accurate information and images. Enjoy!
