FAST FACTS ABOUT THE LIBRARY ORIENTATION SCAVENGER HUNT:

  • Recommended for: Grades 4-7
  • Duration of lesson: 1-2 class periods (45 minutes each; I do the Library Orientation Scavenger Hunt in one class period, but in the feedback, some librarians said they needed two periods.)
  • Formats: PPT or Google Slides; PDF
  • Number of slides: 11
  • Number of printable pages: 16

WILL THIS LIBRARY ORIENTATION ACTIVITY WORK FOR A SUB?

Probably not. There is some set-up required on the morning of the lesson. The QR codes could get lost if they are set up the day before. I would not personally leave this lesson for a sub.

YOU WILL ALSO NEED:

  • printer, copier, large monitor for presentation slides
  • Students will need: pencil, copies of scavenger hunt grid, cell phone or tablet with a camera or QR code scanner app
  • NOT needed: internet connection. The QR codes will scan with or without wifi.

THIS BACK TO SCHOOL LIBRARY LESSON INCLUDES:

  • Library Orientation Scavenger Hunt grid (3 pages, editable in PDF and PPT)
  • 24 QR codes (4 pages, editable in PDF and PPT)–These will work for any location in your library. You can hand-write or type the locations on the QR code pages. 6 codes per page.
  • 24 “Non-QR code” cards (4 pages, editable in PDF and PPT)–These have the secret word on them, so you can use them if you do not want to or cannot use QR codes. 6 cards per page.
  • List of suggested library locations (1 page, editable in PPT and PDF)
  • Cheat Sheet (1 page, editable in PPT and PDF)–Record your locations and the secret word for each. The Cheat Sheet makes it easier if a code gets lost or damaged in the middle of a busy day or class period.

  • Detailed directions for librarians and teachers (3 PDF page, tips and prep)

WHAT WILL STUDENTS DO DURING THIS LIBRARY LESSON?

This is a great back to school library lesson because it gets students exploring the library on their own!

This Library Orientation Scavenger Hunt asks students to locate selected items around the library. When they find the items, they will scan the QR codes. Each QR code reveals one word. Students use the words to unscramble the secret message.

WHAT’S THE SECRET MESSAGE?

“Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.” –Dumbledore, The Goblet of Fire
