Product Description

This scavenger hunt features a five reading passages that students must read and identify the main idea presented by the author. They do this by scanning a QR code and reading the passage. Student then visit a QR code envelope and scan the corresponding code to get a clue letter. Once all clue letters are gathered, they can solve a riddle.

The theme of this scavenger hunt is bridges. I intentionally made the TOPIC of each passage the same (bridges) so that students are forced to recognize the different between Main Idea and Topic.

The passages are:

The Spin on Spans

A Bridge Too Far

Learn to Play Bridge

So Many Bridges (homographs)

The Bridge as a Symbol
