Library Scavenger Hunt

A library scavenger hunt is a great activity for your class.  It is a fun way to introduce your students to the resources of your library.

Are you looking for creative language arts lesson plans to add to your bag of tricks?   This one just might do the trick for you and your students!

Simply print out the list below or pick and choose the clues that best work for your school library and add ones that are specific to your location. Have the students work on their own or in pairs depending on their age level. 

Remember to remind them to use their quiet voices so that they don't disrupt other students who are studying.
