Playing the Pi Day Scavenger Hunt is a fun and educational activity that can be adapted for different ages and settings. Here’s a general guide:

Preparation:

  • Print the scavenger hunt sheets. You’ll have one with images of items starting with “Pi” for younger kids, and another with words beginning with “Pi” for older kids.
  • Familiarize yourself with the items or words listed so you can guide the children if needed.

Set the scene:

  • For younger children, hide or place the objects (or pictures of them) around the area where you’re conducting the hunt. Just cut out an extra page and hide the pictures.
  • For older children, no physical setup is needed as they’ll be searching for items or concepts that start with “Pi” in their surroundings.

  • Set a time limit for the scavenger hunt to add a sense of excitement.

Starting the hunt:

  • Distribute the scavenger hunt sheets and pencils or pens.
  • Start the timer and let the kids begin their hunt.
  • For younger kids, assist them in finding and identifying the items.

Concluding the game:

  • Once the time is up, gather everyone together.
