We spend time in cemeteries doing research and learning about the people buried there. When I have specific graves I am looking for, I don't want my kids to get bored, so I created this Cemetery Scavenger Hunt to keep the kids occupied. Doing the scavenger hunt also sharpens their reading and math skills by looking for specific names and numbers.
You can download the Cemetery Scavenger Hunt HERE. Feel free to adjust it and change it according to what you would like to add/delete. For the youngest kids, I have them find one of each picture. For the older kids, I have them count how many of each picture they find. (The picture of the bride in an oval is supposed to represent a grave with a picture of the person on it.)
- Crayons (with the paper peeled off; AKA "naked crayons")
- Scavenger hunt
- Snacks (apples, crackers, sandwiches, etc)
- Water or something to drink
- A camera for each kid
- This is optional, but something fun for them to do. Instead of just crossing off the picture on the scavenger hunt when they find it, it's fun if they can take a picture.
