Free Printable Book Scavenger Hunts

Heading back-to-school is a great time to remind kids about how to take care of books, what information they can find in a book and what kinds of books are available.

These two free printable book scavenger hunts are perfect for working on those skills.

How to use the Parts of a Book Scavenger Hunt: 

Have each child select one of their favorite books and draw the outside of the book on their scavenger hunt. Then have the children draw a line from each label to the correct part of the book. (My daughter decided to re-write the labels…)

This is a great way to see how much kids know about books and the perfect time to talk to them about how to handle a book correctly.

How to use the Book Genre Scavenger Hunt:

Grab the scavenger hunt and head to the library. (Or your enormous home library!) Let the kids search through the shelves to find books for each genre, then have them write the title and author of each book.

They may even find some new books that they want to read in the process!

  1. Thank you for the download printables. I am always looking for ideas to share in our school library. Our fourth and fifth graders did a genre scavenger hunt today and I see they need more practice.
