About this activity: Going on a treasure hunt

Little Scientists at home logo

A treasure hunt is a great opportunity for everyday mathematical exploration. A good way to start this exploration is to investigate maps of familiar places. See if you can find maps online of familiar places such as the zoo, a local recreational area, a shopping centre. You can also look at road maps and public transport networks such as bus, train or tram routes.
