1. Depending on how many computers your
classroom has, allow students to take turns using the Internet to
find answers to Puerto Rico
Scavenger Hunt. If you want to make this activity even more
challenging, give students a time limit in which to find the
answers. (For an average third grade student I would give about 30
minutes to complete this.)
2. After students complete their scavenger hunt, have them print
out a copy of Puerto Rico’s flag at www.abcteach.com/flags/puertorico.htm. Students can color in
their flag or use the copy as a stencil to create one with pieces
of colored construction paper. Attach another piece of paper to
create a booklet.
3. Have students take their answers from the scavenger hunt and in
complete sentences, rewrite them on spelling test paper. Then
place inside their flag booklets.
Here is an example of a flag completed by a student:
To see how well your students
have retained the information given, have them take a short quiz
in a style that best suits their learning style. I normally give a
multiple choice or fill in quiz. I find that third graders have
some trouble with true/false quizzes.
