This packet includes 12 sets of Task Cards (12 in each set) for Math Scavengers Hunts that are aligned with the 5th Grade Common Core Standards. Each "hunt" just requires the teacher to print, cut out the cards, and hide around the classroom. This is a great way to engage kinesthetic learners and review for chapter or state testing!

The packet includes:
- 1 Blank Scavenger Hunt recording sheet for students
- 12 Scavenger Hunts with 12 Cards each (a total of 144 cards)
- Answer Keys for each hunt

Topics for the hunts include:
- Expressions and Multiplication
- Dividing Whole Numbers
- Rounding and Adding Decimals
- Subtracting Decimals
- Multiplying Decimals
- Dividing Decimals
- Adding Fractions (Unlike Denominators)
- Subtracting Fractions (Unlike Denominators)
- Multiplying Fractions
- Dividing Fractions
- Converting Units of Measure
- Geometry

There is also a Scavenger Hunt Set available for 4th Grade:

Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.
Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
Interpret the product (𝘒/𝘣) Γ— 𝘲 as a parts of a partition of 𝘲 into 𝘣 equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations 𝘒 Γ— 𝘲 Γ· 𝘣. For example, use a visual fraction model to show (2/3) Γ— 4 = 8/3, and create a story context for this equation. Do the same with (2/3) Γ— (4/5) = 8/15. (In general, (𝘒/𝘣) Γ— (𝘀/π˜₯) = 𝘒𝘀/𝘣π˜₯.)
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘒/𝘣 + 𝘀/π˜₯ = (𝘒π˜₯ + 𝘣𝘀)/𝘣π˜₯.)
