Two Scavenger Hunts
Cards 1-8 focus on understanding plot development through summarizing, analyzing characters, and making inferences.
Cards 9-16 use the same text and allow students to dig deeper into character analysis and expand their vocabulary.
How to Use
Hang the scavenger hunt cards 1-8 around your room or in the hallway. Divide students into pairs or triads and assign each to a starting page. Students will work the student answer page. After choosing their answer, they have to hunt for the answer. If no page has their answer, they know they chose an incorrect answer and need to go back. When they find their answer, they’ll continue the scavenger hunt.
The only way to finish the scavenger hunt is to get the question right for each page. Repeat with cards 9-16.
This is self-checking, feedback-embedded, and relearning in one task!
