Are you having trouble engaging students with ELM Resources? Do they enjoy finding clues and completing missions? Do they like to be the hero in their own adventure? Look no further than the Minitex Digital Scavenger Hunts!

What is ELM you ask? “The Electronic Library for Minnesota (ELM) is a collection of databases available to Minnesota schools, libraries, and residents. The ELM databases give Minnesota residents online access to magazine, journal, newspaper, encyclopedia articles, multimedia and more on a vast array of subjects. ELM is brought to you by your local library or school media center, Minitex, and State Library Services, the Minnesota state library agency, with state appropriations to the Minnesota Office of Higher Education and the Minnesota Department of Education, and federal LSTA funds under the support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services.”
