Standards for the lesson plan
Geometry: Scavenger Hunt

These standards and benchmarks are from McREL's online database, Content Knowledge: A Compendium of Standards and Benchmarks for K-12 education (4th edition, 2004) (http://www.mcrel.org/standards-benchmarks/.)

Grades K-2

Benchmark 2: Uses discussions with teachers and other students to understand problems

Standard 5: Understands and applies basic and advanced properties of the concepts of geometry
Grades K-2
