West Lane students go on scavenger hunt | Schools
JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - Students, teachers, and parents at West Lane Elementary School went in search of clues as they looked for the ultimate prize.
It's all part of a schoolwide scavenger hunt in honor of American Education Week.
The kids were given a challenge like reciting the school's code of conduct. If they got it right, they were given a clue for the next challenge.
Organizers say they wanted it ot be fun and educational.
"These are all skills that they have been taught in their reading classes and their math classes and P.E. and their counseling sessions," said Shanna Wilson, assistant principal at West Lane Elementary School. "And it's also a way to promote good sportsmanship."
More than 500 students took part in the hunt.
The winners get a class party.
