Spring break is right around the corner in these here parts. I think the kids have seen my Spring Bunny Scavenger Hunt for the past two years so this year I wanted something new. Then I saw this tweet from elementary school librarian Carter Higgins and I was set.
It reminded me of the Guess Who Book Character display I did last fall. When I emailed Carter she generously shared her files with me and allowed me to revise them for my library. She has also given me permission to share original files here! So you get two versions for the price of one, haha! Choose which one works best for you!
This is Carter’s version. You have to add a letter to each character when your print them out. Then hide them around and have the kids unscramble the letters to form the secret phrase “Reading Rocks.” Unfortunately I don’t have access to an editable version of this one. But here are the files for the document and all the images:
- Scavenger Hunt Form
- Wolfie the Bunny
- Elephant and Piggie
- Ballet Cat
- Harry Potter
- The Pigeon
- Dennis from Be a Friend by Salina Yoon
- Snappsy the Alligator
- Leo the Ghost
- Beige Crayon
- Little Elliot
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar
- Peter from A Snowy Day
This is my version. I put the characters in order as I think the unscrambling part will be too tricky for some of my younger patrons. My Word document or PDF document both have the scavenger hunt sheet as well as all the characters with their corresponding letters. Print, hide, and let the kids hunt!
