Use these cards in a variety of ways. Use them to go on a Scavenger Hunt, as task cards, or to play “Scoot.” Teacher directions/suggestions included.

If you’re not familiar with using the cards as a Scavenger Hunt, cards are “hidden” around the room “in plain sight.” All cards are located within a child’s eye view, so it’s not necessary for students to handle the cards. Of course, depending on your class, you might want to hide them in a few more challenging areas! Students attach their Answers Sheet to clipboards, and the fun begins! Students must search the room to find all 20 cards to read the cards and then answer the text dependent questions on their Answer Sheets. We then come together as a class to review and discuss the answers. (Answer key provided)

Simply print in color, cut, and laminate cards. Mount each card on to cardstock or construction paper before laminating to make them extra sturdy. No laminator? No Problem! Students enjoy using the cards just as much if they are printed in grayscale. In fact, printing them in grayscale makes the Scavenger Hunt cards just a bit more difficult to find in the classroom, and there’s no other prep needed. Printing the cards in grayscale saves a lot of ink, too! (They’re just as nice.)
