When our class began learning about Australia's people, animals, land, history, and culture, we started our unit off with an Australian vocabulary scavenger hunt contest between the different groups or pods of students. The children LOVED it, and really got into the contest while learning and sharing about Australia!
This pdf file has five identical parent letters- one for each of the student groups. At the bottom of each parent letter are 8-10 different Australian vocabulary to find pictures or objects for, as well as their points values. There is also a writing assignment given for extra points.
I hope that your class has as much fun with this Australian Vocabulary Scavenger Hunt Class Contest as mine had! They were excited and engaged in active learning- and twice as interested in learning during this unit as they had been in previous years.
