Updated Library Scavenger Hunt


Challenge NO ... Opportunity


Today, we had an activity in the library classroom, and I was displaced along with a group of 25 sixth-graders.  Have you ever tried to keep a group of 25 sixth-graders engaged and some what "quiet" for 90 minutes?  Well we updated our library scavenger hunt to include technology that our young ones are very comfortable with and I think they learned quite a bit.  They worked in pairs and since we are a BYOD school, we incorporated phones and tablets to take digital photos.

Here is a link to the Scavenger Hunt
