Human Treasure Hunt

Materials Needed

Treasure hunt sheet identifying the various “treasures” they need to locate.


Students begin by identifying which questions they can be experts on.The class is then given a specified amount of time to “Find Someone Who…” can do or knows the treasure needed. As a participant finds a person who can do or knows the treasure, that person signs in the appropriate box. At the conclusion of the treasure hunt the information is reviewed by all.


The treasure hunt can be used to review academic material. It is also a way for students to identify other students who can help them. Less able students can also succeed as they do not need to have every answer, but can be an expert on one or two of the answers.
