20 bright, engaging half page scavenger cards. 10 experiment and lab cards and answers to allow students to use what they've learned in identifying scientific method parts
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.
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 sometimes 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 can be taped in sight with students each beginning at a different
number and students rotate at the ring of a bell. E. I’m sure you can think of even more options.
3. 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.
