LOVE Research Scavenger Hunts? Check out this money saving bundle that includes all of the research scavenger hunts in my store PLUS all of the ones I make in the future: Research Scavenger Hunt EXPANDING Megabundle
Students will use books, websites, and encyclopedias to find the answers to 8 basic questions about Memorial Day. Then, they will further their reading and researching skills by adding 2 interesting facts that they didn't already know. For each question/fact, there is a place for students to circle the type of source that they used and write the title and page number. The purpose of this activity is to teach students to read informational text for a purpose and to move past simply "Googling" an answer. Great for beginning researchers!
