Scanning is a very high speed form of reading. When you scan you are looking for specific information. It may be a fact you need to verify or you may have a question in mind that you need to find the answer to. You quickly move your eyes over the text looking for key words that will verify your fact or answer your question. As an example, I don't read Japanese, but I do know the kanji for Tokyo. You could give me a sheet of paper full of Japanese writing and though I would not understand it, I could tell you how many times Tokyo is mentioned, by running my eyes over the text till I saw the 'key words' - Tokyo. That is scanning.

Skimming
Skimming is where you try to get a general idea of what a text is about. You do NOT read every word, but only those sentences that will help you understand the general idea. The most common method is to  -

ii) Read the first sentence of each paragraph. This usually tells you what the paragraph is about (but not always).  Maybe read a few words in the middle to see if you were right.
iii) If you're still unsure, read the last sentence of the paragraph.
iv)  Read the last paragraph carefully as it often contains a summary of what the writer wants to say.
