For teachers, you should categorize the different sections of the scavenger hunt and what they must do to assemble materials for each section. For students, your goal is to provide a logical progression of instructions culminating in an educational end result. Teams must incorporate some graphics into the scavenger hunt design.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR TEACHERS PLANNING What You Need Any word processor with graphics capabilities, access to multiple search engines, and the book From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler . What You Want Your Students to Learn Your students will explore and discuss the issues which confront the characters in the book (such as friendship, making choices, and independence). The scavenger hunt gives you a fun way to extend and expand the lesson. You can direct it to expose kids to Renaissance Art , Michelangelo , Egyptian Art , and museums in general. Hint: Try keyword searches on various search engines to see if there is a category to fit the concepts you are emphasizing. Every time your students visit a web site, they are working on reading comprehension as they look for and collect information, process and apply that information, and learn how to cite references properly. The computer skills your students use will include the following tasks: -- Simple research using search engines (in the form of easy key word searches) -- Copying and pasting pictures and text from the Internet -- Documenting sites where information was found -- Navigating search engines and URLs Even if your students are new to computers, they will be successful. If you are concerned that some of the technical skills are too advanced or if your resources are limited, partner them! They’re sure to love
