Literary Genre Activities – Scavenger Hunt Genre Review


Get ready to give your students an engaging & creative literary genre review! This scavenger hunt will get your students up and out of their seats, identifying book genres by various characteristics and completing the question loop around the room.


Through this interactive genre review adventure, your students will put their genre knowledge to the test while having a blast. Boost their critical thinking, teamwork, and problem-solving skills as they navigate the question trail. This activity encourages active participation & reinforces genre understanding.

What’s Included? 

  • Teacher’s Facilitation Guide
  • 15 Genre Review Questions – Color & B&W
  • Recording Sheet
  • & Answer Key

I recommend using these literary genre activities after you teach students about what genre means and the most common types of literary genres.

How long does this scavenger hunt activity take?

It really depends on the level of your students! Most students should be able to complete the circuit in ~15-20 minutes. This makes it a great review activity directly after teaching – or for incorporating it into an existing station rotation!
