Scavenger hunt

This strategy will help students to:

  • locate current and relevant information on sexual health issues in a short time frame.


  1. Give each student a set of questions related to a topic on a ‘scavenger sheet'.

  2. Provide literature such as fact sheets, books, posters, pamphlets or a list of websites. This will focus students on the task and let them use their time more efficiently.

  3. Ensure the questions are open-ended to allow students to elicit a range of responses. For example: What are the different types of contraception? Who can advise young people about safer-sex practices?  

  4. Students can work individually or with a partner to answer the scavenger hunt questions. 

  5. Responses can be used to engage students in class discussions.
