More about this Product

→ With the Scavenger Hunt game I have the students complete it as part of a rotation during reading groups or social studies centers. 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.


This product features 16 digital task cards.

Each of 8 terms (map, globe, compass rose, scale, equator, hemisphere, latitude, and longitude) is practiced twice. Eight cards are drag and drop with an unscramble the term activity and 8 cards are fill in the blank.
