Vocabulary Scavenger Hunt

Collaborative Learning | Adoption Level

Subject: 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.

Technology Present

  • Computers with internet access
  • Instant Messaging (IM)
  • Word processor

Grade Level: 6-8

Note: The TIM is about teaching, not technology. The placement of videos on the TIM is based entirely on the teaching practices demonstrated in the lesson and not on the specific technology employed. Simple or even out-dated technology can be used at the higher levels of technology integration just as the latest or most complex technology can be used at lower levels.
