PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Frog or Toad Scavenger Hunt

This 20 card scavenger hunt introduces students to information and fun facts about frogs and toads that invites comparison. A frog/toad Venn diagram and a Comparison Matrix are also included, so that students can show they understand the differences.

In addition to the scavenger hunt twelve cards, featuring photographs of either a frog or a toad, are included with an answer sheet so students can put their knowledge to work identifying frogs and toads by their varying characteristics. Students will need to read for detail and analyze what they've read to make correct deductions. This is a higher level thinking, yet fun activity!

1. Print the Frog or Toad Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock or brightly-colored paper and cut them apart along the dotted lines.
2. Make copies of the Frog or Toad Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet (2-sided). Each student needs a copy.
3. Place the Frog or Toad 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.
