Scavenger Hunts are a great way to promote active engagement in your classroom! Print the posters and hang them around your classroom, down the hallway, or in another open area. Give each student a recording sheet and let the fun begin! The students will start at any poster by solving the problem on that poster and recording their work on the answer sheet. Then the students will find the answer to the problem they solved on another poster and work on the new poster. If they are unable to find their answer on a poster, then they should return to the previous poster and rework the problem to find the correct answer. This is a great way to get your students up and moving while practicing math skills. You can have the students work individually or as partners.
This Scavenger Hunt Correlates to 5.MD.1
