Lesson Plan Title : Internet Hunt
Age Range: Grade 9 through Grade 12 (High School Level)
Overview and Purpose : "Which way did they go?" Students will do some detective work online to find different ways in which their vocabulary words are used.
Objective: The student will be able to find examples of the vocabulary words on the internet.
Internet access for each pair of students
Divide the class into pairs or trios. Have them work from their vocabulary list and search for three references to each word. They should note the website the word was used on and the context it was used in. (The online word should be the same part of speech as the vocabulary word.)
When all the students are finished, come back together as a class and review the lists. The activity can be made competitive by giving the groups points for each unique website they find.
More advanced students can be challenged to find the vocabulary words used incorrectly or in a different form.
