Can I adapt the aquarium hunt for older students?
As older kids often get left out of the fun, I wanted to give you some ideas on how to adapt this aquarium hunt for older students.
They can still hunt for the items, but this time, tell them to research the item they find. Either on the phone when they are there, or when they get back home or to the classroom.
Then give a short summary of the items they have found. This can either be a fun writing activity or a discussion.
I highly recommend you take a storage clipboard with you, so you can keep all of the booklets you receive plus carry pencils and coloring pens.
