Scavenger Hunt

A fun way to review vocabulary after 3 or 4 weeks or as an end of term activity.
For younger kids I recommend using pictures instead of text.
For older kids I made cryptic rhymes regarding various places around the school in which they would have to search these places out and take photos of them with their mobile phones (if they are allowed to leave the classroom).
It can be modified for virtually any vocabulary type, I've used it for food, shopping malls, grocery stores and even just around the classroom.

In this sample I've given, I described some of my students which I used as an added twist to test their ability to match descriptions. Feel free to change or modify it.

To add a speaking part I ask the students to tell me what they found and where.

I have found this activity to be very useful as it gives the students a chance to actively use the English they've been learning that term.

The above downloadable handout is meant for high school students, elementary school students, kindergartners and nursery school students and adults at Beginner (pre-A1), Elementary (A1), Pre-intermediate (A2) and Intermediate (B1) level. It is excellent for honing your class' Speaking and Reading skills.

I have been teaching ESL for 10 years now. I currently live in China and still love my job! In my off hours (not many of those) I watch movies and surf the internet.
