Internet Scavenger Hunt Worksheet

If you want to plan a fun online activity for people of any age, here’s a great internet scavenger hunt worksheet you can use.

It’s a game where players have to find different websites for each letter of the alphabet that could keep the players busy for a long time and can be a great team building activity.

Here’s how to play it:

Resources

  • Worksheet (see below)
  • Pens
  • Internet access

Preparation

None needed

Teams

This will depend on how many people you have playing the game. With a large group, split them into smaller teams of 3-5 people to get them to work together and to encourage team building.

For smaller groups, this could be played in pairs or individually.

Instructions

Give each player / team a scavenger hunt worksheet and a pen. Explain that on the top of the sheet is a list of 26 different types of websites that can be found on the internet.

Their task is to use the box on the bottom half of the sheet to create a list of actual websites – one for each type of site listed at the top.

There is a restriction though that makes this game much harder – each site has to start with a different letter of the alphabet, hence it being an alphabet scavenger hunt.

Example

Here’s the list of different types of website, along with one possible A-Z solution (this example is for you – don’t give it to the players!)

Beneath this list is a link for a printable worksheet – please feel free to print as many copies as you need when organizing this internet scavenger hunt.
