Use these Back to School Scavenger Hunt handouts or task cards to help students become familiar with their English textbooks. Choose between two activities to help students find the table of contents, copyright date, authors, and content such as stories, poems, and nonfiction texts. They also look for the index, a literary term, map, and an engaging picture. These basic elements should be in most English textbooks.
In addition to helping students learn to use their textbooks, this activity is perfect for those classes that get “off track” from the rest of your classes because of school assemblies and meetings at the beginning of the school year. Furthermore, students do not even realize they are using previewing and pre-reading skills because they are having fun!
