Reflection: Student Ownership Parts of Speech Scavenger Hunt - Section 3: Scavenger Hunt


Although this activity was introduced as a review of prior knowledge, the involvement of students using appropriate parts of speech to create a variety of sentence types encouraged students to expand their basic concept of parts of speech. 

Identifying verbs that were appropriate for the nouns was difficult for the students since they needed to pass the literal interpretation within the courtyard.  Many came to me and said that the nouns aren’t doing anything.  I explained that they had to dig deep into their minds and think of words that could demonstrate the actions.
