PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will work in groups to define content-specific, commonly used vocabulary. They will define the words verbally and through physical representations, using both definitions and contextual knowledge. This activity is designed to complement UCSMP chapter one (Functions & Algebra review) lessons. The scavenger hunt can be presented as a contest, with students voting for the most memorable/ best explanations/ most creative/ etc. group. The hunt could function as an introductory activity, review, or embedded assessment.
Minimum total classroom time: approximately 2 full periods, or 1.5 – 2 hours, with about half spread over the course of a week.

The scavenger hunt is adapted from research and ideas presented in SIOP and Fisher, Brozo, Frey, & Ivey (2007) to help students who are English language learners. Finding their own visual representation of words helped all of my students, including those who have harder times memorizing, creative students, students who learn better by talking, and more. According to Fisher, Brozo, Frey, & Ivey (2007), this can be used effectively before and during learning the vocabulary in class.
