Personally, I thought the Scavenger Hunt was fun and a great way to meet my classmates. Also, I like to work in groups. The Scavenger Hunt really set a strong and legitimate impression on how exciting and chill this class is going to be.
If I had to do this hunt again, I would rely on the computer more. Most of the things on the list can be found on the internet.
My group's strategy, like most other groups, was to get the most pictures efficiently and quickly as possible because we didn't want to stay outdoors. That's when we decided to go to the library to use the computer and warm ourselves up. At the library, we found many items from the internet and also saw other groups use the computers, so we thought this idea was our best, but we didn't want to be "cheap" so we decided to actually go out and start to look for the items. It turns out that looking for items outside wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. It was fairly easy because we knew where to look for certain things and were fortunate to encounter the right people.
The problems my group members and I experienced during the hunt were very trivial and minor. For example, we couldn't find a coke bottle at the bookstore because the bookstore doesn't sell coke and it was hard for us to find two honda civics of the same color parked next to each other. Finding another person named April/Apryl was out of the question for us. For problems like these, we decided to skip because we didn't want to waste too much time and let these items drag us down. In the end, we just decided to find the items that was the easiest to find and save the hard ones for last.
The Scavenger Hunt definitely required creativity. My group and I had to be innovative and strategize a plan because it was a timed activity. In today's society, everybody has problems and challenges that need solving; they're an inevitable part of living. What many people don't realize, however, is that most of these problems can be overcome by using a simple, focused plan of personal creativity and brainstorming. This activity was a great way to use our creativity and imagination.
