Description

Are you looking for a fun activity to introduce your study of poetry?  This high-interest activity combines the fun and challenge of a scavenger hunt with the beauty and magic of poems.
 
This poetry scavenger hunt allows your students to dive headfirst into the world of poetry while looking for poems to fit different categories.
This copy-and-go resource allows students to use both books and online sources. This scavenger hunt can be introduced as a whole group but then completed as individual or centers work over the course of a couple of weeks.
It can be used with any level of poems so that every ability level can complete the same assignment.
 
Part of the assignment is to include the source. Elementary students need to start getting in the habit of crediting their sources (not APA bibliography – just listing their source), so part of the assignment is to include the source where each poem was found.
 
A student/peer checklist and a scoring rubric are included.
 
Resource includes:
Suggestions for Use
A Scavenger Hunt Challenge and directions
The Scavenger Hunt Chart
Scavenger Hunt student checklist (with peer evaluation section)
Scavenger Hunt Scoring Rubric
 
Enjoy this fun way to introduce your students to the beautiful world of poetry. Have your students write poetry, too. You may enjoy these resources:
Also included in each resource is a visualizing poetry lesson using a classic poem.
