The goal of this "scavenger hunt" is to give each of you on opportunity to
explore the Internet. I have tried to select a variety of questions for
you to answer and I have suggested various tools for you to "search" for
It is very important to remember the location of the scavenger hunt
"home page". It acts like Home Base in a game of Tag. To get
back to the "Hunt Home Base" page after finding the answer to each
question, pull down the GO menu and choose Hunt Home Base and
you will be instantly transported back to the
page with the scavenger hunt questions. (It won't work until you have
alaready been there though)
Begin by entering your name and e-mail address. A list of "winners"
will be posted periodically on this page. In order for your answers
recorded you must "submit" them at the end of the hunt. If you are doing
this for a class, you need to e-mail me separately so I can send a copy
of your answers to you so you can give them to your teacher.
Read each question very carefully. You can either perform a
search using one of the search tools available, or you can click on
the appropriate icon found at the beginning of the Hunt Home
Base page. Be sure you select the appropriate icon--they are in order
from left to right, and the pictures reflect the topic of the clue. Don't
forget that you can follow the given path also.
After you have found the answer to the question asked, return to
Hunt Home Base and type the answer in the white space on the form below
each clue, then proceed to the next question. After the last question
is answered, you must "submit" your answers. You will only get credit
for the correct responses you submit. You can go through the scavenger
hunt as many times as you wish, but once you close your "session" the
answers will be lost. You may want to write you answers on a separate
sheet of paper, then enter all of your answers at once.
If a window appears reminding you that "Information" you submit is not
secure, click "Don't Remind Again".
After answering the question in the appropriate blank, continue with
the next question. Return to the icons, select the appropiate icon and
If all else fails, and you really want to know the
you can give this a try... Enjoy.
