Learn About the Library on Read Across America Day!
Invite your students into the school or classroom library and send them on a journey to find different genres of books, research tools, text features and fun facts about a variety of topics!
Students begin with a United States map that has been tagged with major cities across the U.S. They must then complete a series of scavenger hunt tasks to locate specific information and books in the library.
This activity is the perfect way to engage your upper elementary students and introduce them to new authors, genres and information they didn’t know they could find in the library … all while getting into the spirit of Read Across America Day.
This is the first in a series of brand-new resources coming down the line for Read Across America Week. Grab this one while it’s hot, and stay tuned for new literacy and reading inspired resources coming to the site daily!
