By participating in this activity, students will improve their understanding of prepositions, as well as their ability to use them accurately in their writing and speech.


Prepositions are an important part of English grammar that can be challenging for students to master. Understanding how to use prepositions properly can help students communicate more effectively in both spoken and written English. This activity is designed to help students practice identifying and using prepositions in a fun and engaging way.


Preposition Treasure Hunt


  • To identify and use prepositions in context
  • To practice sentence construction and creative writing
  • To develop teamwork and collaboration skills


  • Preposition flashcards or word list
  • Treasure hunt clues
  • Writing materials (paper, pens, etc.)
  • Timer


  1. Divide the class into teams of 3-4 students.
  2. Provide each team with a set of preposition flashcards or a preposition word list.
  3. Explain the rules of the treasure hunt game: Each team will receive a set of clues that lead them to different locations around the classroom or school. At each location, they will find a card with a sentence containing a missing preposition. The team must identify the missing preposition and write a new sentence using the correct preposition.
  4. Give the teams a set amount of time to complete the treasure hunt (e.g., 30 minutes).
  5. Once all teams have completed the treasure hunt, have each team share their completed sentences with the class.
  6. Award points to teams based on the number of correct answers and the creativity of their new sentences.


  • Observe students during the activity to assess their understanding of prepositions and their ability to use them in context.
  • Evaluate completed sentences to assess student mastery of preposition usage and creativity.


  • Have students create their own preposition treasure hunt for another class to complete.
  • Challenge students to write a short story or paragraph that incorporates as many prepositions as possible.


  • Instead of a treasure hunt, have students play a game of preposition charades or Pictionary.
  • Use preposition worksheets or online games to supplement the activity.


  • Ask students to reflect on what they learned about prepositions and how they can use this knowledge to improve their writing and communication skills.


  • Provide additional support or scaffolding for students who may struggle with preposition usage.
  • Encourage creativity and imagination in sentence construction.
