Fiction Scavenger Hunt 3 is two scavenger hunts in one! Get students moving, reading and rereading, analyzing literary elements, and making inferences using text evidence! The activity fun and engaging for two full days.
Read the text first. This can be a shared reading, peer reading, or independent reading. There is room to annotate in the margins, and there is no title, so students can make up their own titles for the main idea.
Hunt #1. In the first scavenger hunt, students will complete multiple choice questions on the text. If they get the answers correct, the will be able to complete the hunt. If they get the answers wrong, they will not be able to complete the hunt - it is self-checking and the answers link to one of eight cards.
The first scavenger hunt is more scaffolded than the second hunt, so students will have more success with the multiple choice questions than if they were just given a worksheet.
You can choose to reread the text or have some type of reading response to the text. A written retelling is a great activity for students to build long-term memory and visualizing skills.
Hunt #2. The second fiction scavenger hunt is open-ended with a word bank. This is more difficult than the first because students can't just guess the answers based on seeing them on the cards. They can only use the word from the bank one time to answer the questions.
*A dictionary may be useful on day 2.
