A "Knowledge Hunt" is a short quiz that includes 10 knowledge-based questions. These activities are meant to assist students in exploring and quickly becoming familiar with one of the theme areas. They may be used as a short, five-minute introduction to the content and navigation of the site or even as an online, small-group scavenger hunt. The Knowledge Hunts are available for teachers with or without answers. The version without answers is also contained within Student Resources or it may be printed off for student use.

As an introductory activity to the Mavericks: An Incorrigible History of Alberta web site, students may take five to ten minutes to become familiar with the site and answer the specific questions they have been provided.
