Webhound's Scavenger Hunt
Use this interactive worksheet to enter your answers to the WebHound's hunt. You can choose to have it generate a printable version and/or email you the information entereed here.
Here is a chance for you to explore your investigative skills.
Let's see how much of a webhound you really are! We list 10 questions and give the site from which you will find the answers (Note that each link will open in a new browser window. Close it when you are done with the site to return to this page). You may have to root around in a site to find them. If you can get all 10, consider yourself a Great Dane; if you find less than 1, we relegate you to a Measly Mutt... If you're well-trained on this hunt, try our newer 1999 Scavenger Hunt.
