As an introduction to a new book, it can be interesting and valuable for students to learn about the author. This scavenger hunt activity is designed to have students searching for information on the author's official website to make personal connections and practice researching skills.
The focus of this scavenger hunt is Jean Craighead George, author of My Side of the Mountain and many other nature-related books. (See http://www.jeancraigheadgeorge.com/works.html for a full listing over her books)
Because I developed this activity for a reading group in Virginia, there are Virginia Standards of Learning references at the bottom of the sheet. This is also set up as a two-sided half sheet to save paper. (Tip: Copy double sided for half the number of students in class then cut the pages in half)
Included with your purchase:
-- PDF of activity with VA standard references (2-sided half sheet)
-- PDF activity without standard references (2-sided half sheet)
-- Editable Publisher file (fonts may not convey)
