Have a Scavenger Hunt!

This activity worked great when I needed something for a substitute teacher to do, or on those days I wasn't feeling quite up to snuff. 

I took a classroom reader they had already finished and made a list of 10-12 words that could only be found on one specific page. For example, I might have chosen the word "wow" from this page. 

Assigning the children in groups, give each child a book, but the group gets one list of words. They have X number of minutes to find all the words and put the page number next to the word.

When time is up, the table with the most correct answers wins!

(Note: the list would look something like this:)

wow        ____________
gong        ____________
pocket     ____________
