Literature Internet Hunt Activities created by Cindy O'Hora

The Internet is an excellent resource for helping you better understand what you are reading in a book.
These hunts explore: settings, characters, author's lives, and other ideas related to the book being studied.
Users will also gain experience harnessing the Internet for research.

How to Use: I suggest you create a link from your class/school web page to this index page or the individual hunt activity page.
Use a Digital format to answer. Or Print the hunt page for an answer sheet. Or have the students number down a lined sheet of paper.

Goldilocks Web tip: You can easily adjust your view of the text on a page. If you think the words are too small: Safari - Go: View .. Make Text bigger or Mac - hold down the command key command key and press the + key (plus sign) or Windows use Ctrl & + key. Firefox - Go: View .. Text Size.

Using Mac OSX?

"There was a time in American schools when knowledge came almost exclusively from textbooks and teachers. From them, students learned what they needed to know to get jobs in the factories and workplaces of the industrial age. That time has passed. There's been an explosion of information in the world, more information than anyone could help to learn in a lifetime, more than a teacher can teach, so now students need to know where to find that information, how to access it, and how to use it." Michael Lemonick
