Internet Scavenger Hunt
« on: April 22, 2017, 10:06:51 PM »
Internet scavenger hunts are fun activities that allow students to use technology and be creative. I think that they are good assignments to use because they are easy to create and can be very informative. Even of there are not many computers available in the classroom, internet scavenger hunts can be given out as take-home assignments. These assignments can be adapted to fit may categories, including reading and writing. I think that an internet scavenger hunt could be used as a prereading activity in order to have students look up and define new vocabulary before encountering it in the text. It could ask students to compare definitions from different online dictionaries or to practice using it in a sentence. If the text is online, this could also be used as a postreading activity with questions that require students to go back through the text for answers or to search for unfamiliar items mentioned in the text and then draw or describe them.
