Ghost Hunting!

We went on a ghost hunt today to look for prepositions! The kids had such an awesome time! I used a worksheet I found on Pinterest. The kids took a sticky note and drew a ghost. I then gave the class a few minutes to "hide" their ghost. The students wrote descriptive sentences about where they spotted ghosts around the room. They then had to circle the preposition, and underline the prepositional phrase. This was a great reinforcement activity to go along with our unit on prepositions that we are currently using this week. 

Some examples of sentences: 
The spooky ghost was stuck to the fan above my head. 
A pink ghost was hiding our teacher's birdhouse. 
A surprised ghost answered the telephone in our classroom. 

 You can print the Preposition Hunt out in Google Docs here! 


  1. I LOVE this idea! Kids love to be able to move around the room. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I will be finishing up our unit on prepositions this week and this activity will be a perfect add-in. Thanks for posting it.
