Two Realistic Fiction Scavenger Hunts
>Cards 1-8 focus on using analyzing characters’ thoughts, feelings, and actions in multiple-choice formats.
>Cards 9-16 have different texts and focus on inferring character’s feelings and thoughts in open-ended questions.
How to Use
Hang the character analysis scavenger hunt cards 1-8 around your room or in the hallway. Divide students into pairs or triads and assign each to a starting page. Students will work the student answer page. After choosing their answer, they have to hunt for the answer. If no page has their answer, they know they chose an incorrect answer.
When they find their answer, they’ll continue the hunt.
The only way to finish the scavenger hunt is to get the question right for each page. Repeat with cards 9-16.
