This activity is appropriate for:
Plan a scavenger hunt…for information your class learned throughout the year! Create a list of questions
whose answers can be found in books the class read during the year. (Make sure copies of the books are available in your
classroom library or reading center.) Make a copy of the list for each child in class, and then let them “hunt” for the answers.
Have kids write down each answer and where they found it.
Give children a time limit in which to find the information. When time is up, collect students' answers.
Count up the correct answers and give a prize to
the student(s) who found the most!
2nd - 6th grade / 7 - 11 years
Note: Tell children that they don’t need to answer the questions in order—that way, if the book needed to answer
the first question is being used, they can simply answer another question on the list.
