Scavenger Hunt: Where is Gina The Geographer

In this activity, students will participate in an online scavenger hunt based on a story that a geographer named Gina, who loves to travel, has escaped to an undisclosed location. It is their mission to bring her back to the school. Students must follow a series of clues about the location including landmarks, weather, and population—and use a U.S. Census Bureau data tool called State Facts for Students to answer questions that lead them one step closer to finding Gina.

This activity takes approximately 60 minutes to complete -- and is great for a summer learning activity, too.
