Fort Scavenger Hunt

The fort scavenger hunt provides students with an overview of the fort's history. It functions as an interactive, self-guiding fort tour. You may want to have your students work in pairs. There is one scavenger hunt for grades 2-4 and another one for grades 5-6.

The park can provide clipboards and compasses (if needed). Please call the park in advance if you will be borrowing supplies. Students should bring writing implements, and teachers should supply copies of the scavenger hunt worksheet for their students.
