Get off the Couch and On Your Feet with Google's Emoji Scavenger Hunt

During this Covid 19 Pandemic, we aren't just worried about students getting enough educational interaction with teachers and students, we also have to be concerned with the amount of sedentary screen time kids are spending on the couch. While getting of the phone or tablet altogether may be the best option, Emoji Scavenger Hunt powered by Google is also a fun alternative.

Emoji Scavenger Hunt may not have tons of educational value, but it will get you on your feet and moving around the house! A great option for doing "PE at Home." It isn't an app from the app store, but a website to pull up on your phone. Once the page is loaded, all you need to do is press the Let's Play button, and the fun begins.
