How to use this resource:

Option 1: Hide cards around the room and have students walk around with their pencils and scavenger hunt templates (leaning on clipboards) searching for the cards. Once a card is found, they match it to their template, highlight it and write the meaning


Option 2: Set up a nonfiction text feature center. Have students place all cards face down. Students take turns in selecting a card, reading it aloud, then everyone finds it on their template and writes the meaning!
