Catechism Scavenger Hunt

Catechism Scavenger HuntOne of the main goals of theCatholic Year of Faith is to promote awareness and study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church on its twentieth anniversary of publication. Reading and using the Catechism can be a challenge even for adults. Use this Catechism scavenger hunt as a class activity to help familiarize your high school students with the layout and format of the text.

Students can work on this activity alone or in groups. This activity works best if students have catechisms of their own or if you can acquire a class set for the day. Otherwise, have students share the catechisms with their groups to find the answers.

The following ten questions can be used as a part of this Catechism of the Catholic Churchscavenger hunt. There is nearly a limitless number of additional questions and clues that you could add to this list so please feel free to download the Word Document version of the questions. The PDF of both the questions and the answer key are available below.
