Vocabulary Scavenger Hunt

Collaborative Learning | Adoption Level | Language Arts

Objectives

  • Students will use online reference to define vocabulary words
  • Students will digitally create a document which includes text and visuals arranged in a specific manner.
  • Students will attach meanings of vocabulary words through visuals as well as through context within written articles.
  • Students will digitally share information and documents.
  • Students will use the internet to locate articles involving their word.

Procedure

  • Distribute "The Most Dangerous Game" handout
  • The 5 steps involved are relatively self explanatory; once they get following document, you are out of the loop until they need to get you the final product.
  • Because it is the PROCESS and not the content that is important here, you could use vocabulary from any story; I chose Richard Connell’s The Most Dangerous Game.
  • If all goes according to plan, NO paper will be generated by this project.
