This scavenger hunt provides students with facts about the Day of the Dead, Dia de Los Muertos. The 20 cards have students reading to locate information. Cards in color and in b/w are both included. Coloring pages about Dia de Los Muertos are also included.
1. Print the Day of the Dead Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock then cut them apart.
2. Make copies of the Day of the Dead Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet (2-sided). Each student needs a copy.
3. Place the Day of the Dead 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 or social studies centers. 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.
