Students fill in the blanks with their favorites from throughout the year. This activity is a great chance for the class to remember and talk about the things they enjoyed most. This scavenger hunt comes in color and black and white. Two additional writing pages are included to complete the book. Covers for the 2017-2018, 2018-2019, and 2019 - 2020 school years are currently included. Covers and writing pages for grades 2 – 4 are included.
1. Print the End of the Year Memory Collector Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock and cut them apart along the lines.
2. Make copies of the End of the Year Memory Collector Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet. Each student needs a copy.
3. Place the End of the Year Memory Collector 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.
