This activity was RECENTLY UPDATED to be more visually appealing based on some helpful user feedback!
This is a great activity for engagement and review; I have used it in my own classroom for the past two years with great success. The PDF contains 28 enlarged examples and/or definitions to print and tape up on the walls of your classroom. It also contains a two-sided graphic organizer, which the students will use to record their answers during the "scavenger hunt/carousel activity." Of course, an answer key is included as well.
The 28 reading terms would make a great review prior to state standardized tests, mid-terms, or final exams: 3rd Person Limited Point-of-View, 3rd Person Omniscient Point-of-View, Alliteration, Allusion, Audience, Bandwagon, Cause and Effect, Chronological Order, Circular Reasoning, Compare, Conflict, Contrast, False Causality, Genre, Main Idea, Over-generalization, Over-simplification, Oxymoron, Paradox, Protagonist/Antagonist, Pun, Purpose, Self-Contradiction, Summary, Supported Inferences/Deductions/Conclusions, Symbolism, Theme, and Unsupported Inferences/Deductions/Conclusions.
**As an alternative "hands on" activity, you could chop up the answer key into squares and put the pieces into zip lock bags. Then, students could match up the terms and definitions at their desks (either independently or with a partner).**
