Scavenger Hunt

HS

Many librarian do a library orientation the first few weeks of school. In may consist of simply the rules of the library, a review of what the students have learned in previous years, or a welcome with "this is what the library has to offer.

Springfield Township Scavenger Hunt


I modified an idea I got from Pat Miller's book Stretchy Library Lessons. I took 30 pictures of various things in our library with my digital camera. I loaded them into Powerpoint to make a slideshow. Then I created an index card with a description of what each photo showed (i.e., This is where we check out books, or, If I want a book about a famous person, I'd find it here in the biography section). I passed out the cards in random order to students as they came in the library. Then I showed the slideshow. If a student held a card that matched the picture, they were to stand up and read it out loud. It was fun, participatory, and helped me see what they did and did not know.
