Description

This Common Core Aligned Scavenger Hunt has it ALL! Integrate technology AND meet the rigors of the CCSS.

Featuring the FREE augmented reality app, (Aurasma) Students participate in a scavenger hunt to identify the word with the most suitable connotation for a sentence. When students make their choice at each station, their station sheet becomes a trigger. By holding the Aurasma app over the trigger, they can check their answer AND obtain a secret code letter that helps them solve a riddle.
