Product Description
This Mystery Prize Challenge activity is a fun review of solving equations, unit rates, fraction operations, decimals operations, evaluating algebraic expressions, and converting percents to a fraction/decimal. Students solve problems for a chance to win a mystery prize associated with each of the six problems!

More information about how this activity works can be found in my blog post at the following link. My 6th grade students LOVED this review!

Mystery Prize Challenge Activity

The basic idea of the activity is to post the six problems around the room. Next to each problem, also tape a filled mystery prize bag and a bucket or basket for students to place their answers. Students rotate around the room at their own pace, attempting to answer the problems on scrap pieces of paper. Once they answer a problem, they write their name on the paper and submit it into the basket that is at that problem. Once students have had a chance to complete each problem, the teacher draws answers out of each bucket until a correct answer is drawn. First correct answer wins the prize!

Included in this resource:
(1) 6 problem posters to be posted around the room
(2) Teacher answer key
(3) Summary of how to use the resource (and link to my blog post)

Not included in this resource (but needed for the activity):
(1) Brown paper bags
(2) Mystery prizes of your choice (something your students will like!)
(3) Six containers for students to put answer sheets
(4) Scrap paper for students to record answers
