Are your students not responding well to the traditional vocabulary practices? It is time for a scavenger hunt using Twitter! The idea is simple; your students form groups (which include at least one group member with a Twitter account) to complete a series of challenges using their new vocabulary words in context.
In order to track each group's progress and select winners, you will need to create a unique hashtag for every new hunt. Your students will have to include this hashtag along with the challenge term in every one of their posts in order to receive credit.
