Take your spring literacy fun outdoors with our spring scavenger hunt! Whether you teach preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, special needs, or ELL students, scavenger hunts are a perfect way to blend movement with literacy!
The moment the weather warms, my kids want to be outside until dark. Now, our outdoor adventures have an educational purpose. Our scavenger hunts have both a word with a matching image. My son and daughter are a few years apart, but they both participated in the hunt because our scavenger hunts are multi-leveled.
In case the weather or school rules do not permit you to take your scavenger hunt outside, here are five inside ideas on how to use our spring scavenger hunt.
- Have students search bulletin boards and hallway walls for these images.
- Gather a pile of spring books and have students search for the images in the books. Perfect for literacy centers!
- Send the scavenger hunt home as a fun homework assignment or family project.
- Grab a camera, take a walk, and photograph the images. Then, create a collage or scrapbook.
- Use the large images from our Spring Word Wall Cards and Literacy Center and hide the cards to play “Hide and Go Scavenger”. Remember our scavenger hunt pack is differentiated, so there are three levels of words depending on the needs of your students.
We have got you covered for the WHOLE YEAR with our Scavenger Hunt Pack available HERE! And it’s the perfect reason to have lots of scavenger hunt fun!
