Research Skills For All Ages
Scavenger Hunt is a library research game that can help teach research
skills to elementary grade students. You can play the scavenger hunt
game with any topic that interests you and your students. I have supplied
a sample game using the Civil War as a topic.
Students will demonstrate efficient use of library media center research
tools by verifying given information using different library tools.
Divide students into teams of three or four. Give each team of students
a card with 6 questions printed on it. Give each team a worksheet to list
Used in the Library Media Center . Have students verify facts by using
different sources. Each team is responsible for identifying the sources
they used to verify their answers.
