A science and math scavenger hunt provided a lot of fun for students and parents, and extra credit as well.
In North Miami, over 200 students from David Lawrence Jr. K-8 Center participated in the The Home Depot Science and Math Scavenger Hunt.
Extra credit was appreciated by students who had grades that needed improvement. For that reason many of them showed up at 6:30 am.
The idea of the scavenger hunt is to have students and parents solve math and science problems together in the aisle of the Home Depot Store.
“My mom is always getting me into school activities and she wants me to learn more and be the best,” said Isabellah, 11, who is in the sixth grade. “This shows me more of what I need to do in class, and the experiments that I have to learn how to do and to figure out the equations and all that stuff. It is the same thing we are learning in textbooks.”
