A Scavenger Hunt in Room 102

In past years I spent an entire class period going over classroom expectation and procedures. When I put myself in student shoes, I discovered it was too much information. Students felt overwhelmed!
The middle school is the first year for departmentalization. I am just one of many teachers introducing classroom procedures on the first day of school. Incoming fifth graders find it difficult to remember all the information covered in different classrooms. Therefore, this year I planned a scavenger hunt to introduce classroom expectations and procedures.
Students buddy up and discover the layout and procedures for Room 102.
