Let's Go On A Treasure Hunt!

Let's go on a treasure hunt!  What are we hunting?  Words!  And where are we hunting for them?  In books!

In an effort to bring back dictionary usage, I wracked my brain for something that would make vocabulary fun.  I'm not sure this will work, but I figured it was worth a try.  I picked 10 difficult words and students will get points for: (1) finding the words in books they are reading; (2) guessing the meaning from context; (3) looking the definition up in the dictionary; (4) identifying the word's part of speech; (5) listing synonyms and antonyms of the word.  May the best reader win!
