These are scavenger hunts that make students delve deeper into the text and the story that we are working on for the week. These scavenger hunts include text dependent questions that students need to analyze the text and perform close readings to answer.
At the beginning of the year I introduce these and let my students work with a partner. Eventually they will be working on them independently as the year progresses.
They are also a great guided reading center activity that really get students engaged and involved more in the text!
