Bundle Description

This product includes both a scavenger hunt and a Share, Share, Switch activity to introduce students to information and fun facts about the Mealworm (Darkling Beetle) Life Cycle.

How to Use the Scavenger Hunt

1. Print the Mealworm Life Cycle Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock then cut them apart.

2. Make copies of the Mealworm Life Cycle Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet (2-sided). Each student needs a copy.

3. Place the Mealworm Life Cycle 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.

How to Use the Share Share Switch

1. Cut out the cards. Laminate for longer usability. Teachers, if you have more than 18 students, you can copy a set of cards more than once.

2. Students pair up to share the questions on the cards. Player One shows his card to Player Two, keeping his right thumb over the answer in the bottom right hand corner. If Player Two answers correctly, Player One gives praise or compliments. If Player Two answers incorrectly, the pair work to figure out the mistake.

3. Next Player Two shows her card to Player One covering the answer with her thumb. After both cards are understood, the players switch cards and find new partners.

Students can meet with partners more than once as long as they have both had a chance to get a new card.

Students can also use these cards for independent practice, self-check by removing thumb from answer!
