Plan a Nonfiction "Text Feature" Scavenger Hunt

By Beth Newingham on March 7, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

After students learn different nonfiction text features to help them navigate nonfiction texts, I like them to start paying close attention to the text features they find in their own books. In the primary grades, I'll have them do a scavenger hunt where they check off the features they find, but in the upper grades, they also need to be able to determine the purpose of each text feature and explain why it helps them read the text.

Download my Text Feature Scavenger Hunt and Using Text Features recording sheets. I've posted them as Microsoft Word files so that you can adapt them for your grade level.
