This Scavenger Hunt practices the important skills of using context to determine word meaning. The product includes 20 word cards and a context clues crossword puzzle challenge using the new words.
1. Print the Context Clues Scavenger Hunt Set III cards on card stock and cut them apart along the dotted lines.
2. Make copies of the Context Clues Scavenger Hunt Set III questions worksheet (2-sided). Each student needs a copy.
3. Place the Context Clues Scavenger Hunt Set III 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 word 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.
