This scavenger hunt introduces students to information and fun facts
about Birthdays around the World. It requires students to read for information.
1. Print the Birthdays around the World Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock and cut them apart along the dotted lines.
2. Make copies of the Birthdays around the World Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet (2-sided). Each student needs a copy.
3. Place the Birthdays around the World Scavenger Hunt cards around your classroom where students will be able to find them. You can put them on chairs, on the computer keyboard, on the back of your classroom door, on the sides of student desks, on the chalkboard, or wherever you like.
4. Students have to search the room and find all of the sentence cards to answer the questions. You can differentiate by having students work alone or with a classmate.
With the Scavenger Hunt game I have the students complete it as part of a rotation during reading groups. I only have 4 or 5 students walking around with clipboards to locate the sentence cards and write their answers. Students needing extra support can be paired with a partner for this activity. I have also done similar activities with the whole class or as a filler for early finishers, especially if you made the cards a little bit tricky to find. My students enjoy this activity.
