For educators, Quest Clubs can add excitement and challenge to your classroom and to your school. Quest Clubs is not a curriculum, but a flexible supplement that can be used in any classroom, from preschool/transitional kindergarten (TK) through high school. Quest Clubs can be adapted to be used in general education classes, independent study, Resource Specialist Programs, special education, afterschool programs, and more. As Quest Clubs was originally designed for groups with a wide range of ages, the program is ideal for combination classes and multi-classroom buddy activities.
Whether public, private, or charter school, Quest Clubs can increase student-driven motivation and responsibility through badges. Although not state-standard based, our scouting-like badges can easily be used as-is, or adapted to meet your own requirements. With nine Areas of Discovery, there are literally thousands of badges to choose from, such as World Geography, Light and Shadow, Vikings, Women in Science, Classical Literature, Health and Fitness, and more. Many badges like Gold Rush and Rocks and Minerals can be taught next to each other, perfect for cross-content education. Many badges, such as Books, Animals, and Biographies, are customizable, perfect for book or research reports. If we do not have the badge you or a student desire, there is the Badge Writing badge. You can also email us to request a badge to be written. As Quest Clubs is not a curriculum, you can teach these badges alongside your chosen curriculum or adapted to meet your own state’s standards.
Character badges can increase interest in traits schools may wish to promote in their schools such as Anti-Bullying, Friendship, and Self-Control. If a school is already using a pre-existing program, Quest Clubs can be added on as a supplement with adaptations. With over fifty character badges, students can be guided towards becoming responsible, community-driven citizens.
Badges for Everyone
Due to the thousands of badges that are available, Quest Clubs is excellent for the classroom that finds themselves doing something unusual. Customizable badges like Museums, Travel Destinations, and Man-Made Wonders can be used for almost any field trip you desire. Holidays and seasons can be celebrated with Seasons (Specific), Christmas Around the World, Holidays, Holiday (Specific), Weather, and more. For the more curious and adventurous, there are badges like American Sign Language, Worms, Costume Design, and Balloon Animals. The possibilities are endless.
The optional purchase of badge pins allows students to visually see what they have been learning over the course of the school year. These badge pins can be placed on backpacks, ribbons, clothing, and more. Our magnetic badge pin options mean that badges can even be shown off in lockers or on magnetic whiteboards or other surfaces. Free, printable certificates are also available.
Although there are a seemingly overwhelming amount of badges, Quest Clubs has an active and growing forum of members around the globe. This optional forum is a gold mine for ideas, resources, and support.
Materials may be printed for classroom use only. User names and passwords may not be shared. If students wish to have their own access to the website to work on badges and awards outside of the classroom, they must purchase their own individual participant membership.
