Virginia Book and Scavenger Hunt

Our 4th grade classes learned about the writing and publishing process from local author Tara Fisher when she shared her book, Virginia is for Adventurers, with students. The story follows a group of friends around Virginia as they compete in an outdoor scavenger hunt that is designed to complement the 4th grade social studies curriculum. This summer, small towns, state parks, and historic sites will be participating in a state-wide event inspired by the book. Each of the 15 locations participating will offer an adventure and prizes. All participants are eligible for the grand prize, which is a $2,500 donation to the winner’s elementary school and $250 cash. For more details, go to
