Chemistry and Physics Scavenger Hunt 
Team Instructions
1. Each student in a team of 2 or 3 will be given the same grade based on the number of items found and knowledge of the items.
2.  The scavenger hunt will count for two test grades.
3.  Students may search for the items as a team or assign items to each member.
4.  The lab may not be used as a source of items but the equipment in the lab may be used with prior permission.
5.  Know what you are looking for - use your text or any other resource.
6.  IMPORTANT - items/samples may not be used in more than one category.
7.  Attach a tag or label to identify and describe each item.
8.  Do not let other groups known how much or how little your team has accomplished until the due date.
