For students that struggle to find key words or main ideas in a passage, this fun and interactive scavenger hunt may be useful. While the attached worksheet would work best with an intermediate level class, the activity can be easily adapted for any level. It can also be adapted for use as homework or an in-class partner activity.
Google Search Scavenger Hunt:
Students must skim or read 4 passages, underlining the key words in each one. Then, they must go online and search for their key words on Google. If they can find the passage within the top five hits, they have accurately found the key words of the passage.
