Klikaklu is a free app for users that wish to participate in a scavenger hunt (i.e., students) and it's $9.99 for someone that wishes to create and share a scavenger hunt...well worth it!!

Klikaklu allows you to create a picture hunt whereby students are provided a written clue and then an image clue and must locate and click the image to get credit!  It's also a terrific way to ask questions about the item they've can add multiple choice questions, true/false questions, polls or open ended questions to your hunt!

Here's what you can do with Klikaklu!

The simplest thing I've found that I could do with Klikaklu is to set up stations for students to locate.  Each station has a noteable picture that they must  'click' within the app.  After each image, I insert a question (true/false or multiple choice) at that station for them to answer to demonstrate their knowledge.  I did this with my class while we were going over the classroom policies and procedures to familiarize them with the room as seen in the video above.

Here's the scavenger hunt I made on Klikaklu if you'd like to modify it for YOUR classroom!!

How Can I Build this Myself???

Step #1.  Chart your course

Have an idea in mind for your scavenger hunt....think big or think small, either is okay!  It could be a tour of the library or a tour of the school!  Klikaklu allows you to add images (that are to be image matched) and it also lets you assign multiple choice questions, true/false questions, polls or open ended questions to your hunt!  You can even assign a location to your clues so that a student must be standing in that very spot for the trigger to work!!

Step #2.  Click each clue!

Set up your scavenger hunt by opening the Klikaklu app, titling your hunt and snapping a picture of each image you want to include in your hunt.  If you want, you can ask a supplemental question about each student that the hunter will have to answer.

Step #3.  Publish and Promote your hunt!

When the hunt has been built, Klikaklu allows you to print out a QR code directing students to the hunt in order to complete it.   Students just download the FREE Klikaklu app, enter their age (it's OK if they are under 13) and begin.  There IS a log-in feature, but I found it faster to play anonymously.

Create a tour of your school, a scavenger hunt of your community, a getting to know you activity or even turn a test/quiz review into a dynamic and engaging activity!

Good luck, and keep on Using Your Smarticles!
