Community Literacy Scavenger Hunt

  1. Divide the participants into groups of 4 or 5.

  2. Each group has to go around the community looking for words in the Aboriginal language of the community.

  3. Ask them to write down the words or phrases, and where they are located.

  4. Then they have to find out what the words or phrases mean. They may know themselves, find out from the English translation, or ask someone who can speak the language.

  5. When they have twenty words or phrases, they should return to the starting place.

  6. The first team back is the winner.
