Fun way for students to learn content using scavenger cards and questions.
Students search for the cards and answers for their scavenger sheets, then solve a mystery sentence.
Basically this is content reading disguised as a scavenger hunt.
Perfect for a study guide and for interactive notebooks.
1. Students are able to get out of their seats to find clues
to solve the scavenger questions. Great for brain-based learning
and more fun for students as compared to regular content reading.
2. There is a mystery sentence to solve at the end. Each page has a circled letter.
Students unscramble these letters to discover the mystery sentence.
3. Ideas for implementation: a. Place in obvious spots or really hide, depending on your class. Mine love well-hidden clues. b. I sometimes divide the room and have students work in pairs, other times individually. I have each partner look for different clues, then meet to share. My class does this as a silent activity. c. The cards could be passed around the room and rotated at the clap of your hands. d. The cards could be taped in sight with students each beginning at a different number and students rotate at the ring of a bell.
4. Print out fact cards on heavy paper, then laminate. They may be printed 2 to a page as shown or print out 2 pages per sheet (4 cards will print on each sheet) from your printer for smaller cards.
