This two-part scavenger hunt gets students searching for, moving, writing, and speaking articles, nouns, and adjectives that agree in gender and number in Spanish. Students first match English to Spanish article/noun/adjective phrases by hunting around the room for answers to write in numbered boxes. Students then verbally do the scavenger hunt by reading through the boxes with their answers. Students do the second part several times, timing themselves to see which pair can remember the answers the fastest.
More detailed instructions are given in the document, but the general idea is the following:
1. Each student receives a worksheet and is then placed in pairs.
2.Students then work in pairs starting with whichever box they choose. They read the English article/noun/adjective phrase and then hunt around the room for the correct Spanish phrase. Once they find the phrase, they write it down in the numbered box according to the scavenger hunt piece. For example, a pair of students begins with “the lazy boy” (the first box). They find the scavenger piece with “19. El muchacho perezoso.” They write down “el muchacho perezoso” in the box with number 19 (“The nice girl 19”).
3. To continue the scavenger hunt, students then look at the English phrase in the box they just found and look for the scavenger piece with the correct Spanish phrase once again, repeating the process until all boxes are filled in.
4. After completing the written part of the scavenger hunt, students sit down with their partner to verbally do the scavenger hunt, using the answers they’ve written down. Students do this several times, timing themselves. The winner is the pair with the fastest time.
