 What are Scavenger Hunts-- or Web Links?

 

  • Want to help your students improve their reading and comprehension skills?

 

  • Is problem solving a skill you want your students to practice?

 

  • Would you like your students to search the Internet safely and effectively?

 

  • Do you want your students to gain information and analyze and use the informatio

 

 According to Education World:

 

  • "Online scavenger hunts are easy to create and the resulting interactive searches are both fun and informative for students.

     

  • The hunts can be geared to virtually any curriculum area, simultaneously providing students with technological and subject matter knowledge.

     

  • Online scavenger hunts can be used as a whole class activity, as a team activity, or as a means of providing individual students with review or challenge activities.

     

  • Scavenger hunts can be as simple or involved as circumstances dictate. Younger students may be provided with only a few questions, along with the links or URLs necessary for finding the answers, while older students may be given only a broad topic and asked to find their own sources for obtaining necessary information.
