Garbage Garage Scavenger Hunts

Our Garbage Garage Scavenger Hunts are activity sheets designed for different age groups that kids can use to help guide them through the education center. The scavenger hunts ask them to find answers to questions as they look at the all the displays. We have also developed pre- and post-visit activity sheets for some levels. Please note that the grade level catagories are only suggestions. Adults should look over the scavenger hunts to determine which level best fits their group of kids.

Teachers and parents are welcome to print out copies for their group of students. We will also have copies of the scavenger hunts and the post-visit activity sheets available at the Garbage Garage.

Many of the documents below are in Adobe PDF format, which requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to view. If you don't have Acrobat Reader on your computer, you can download it free.
