Alabama Scrapbook and Scavenger Hunt


Ms. Smithwick's fourth graders will take part in an Alabama Scavenger Hunt! Collected items will be kept and maintained in a scrapbook, which will be due at the end of the year. (May 2, 2008) The goal is to collect as many items as possible for the scrapbook. Each item has a designated point value. Your goal is to get at least 100 points. Some of these items are easy to find and may even be found at school or on our field trip to the state capitol. Others may require a little extra effort. Scrapbook creativity is important and can add up to 15 points to your total grade.

Have fun searching and exploring Alabama the Beautiful!!!!
