This is an awesome alternative to doing worksheets. I have implemented many different scavenger hunts, and my students always ask me when they can do another one! For this scavenger hunt, students will be working on adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers. There are 20 stations in the scavenger hunt.
Here are the directions:
- Print off an accountability for each student and the 20 sheets that make up the scavenger hunt. Tape the 20 sheets randomly around your classroom.
-For the first problem, the students will ignore the top half of the paper and do the problem found on the bottom half of the paper they start at. The problems will always be found on the bottom half of the sheets and the answers to the problems will always be on the top half of the papers.
-Once the students solve the problem and record it on their accountability sheets or in their notebooks, they must find the answer to it, which will be located on the top half of one of the papers in the scavenger hunt.
-They now will solve the problem on the bottom half of the new paper they found their answer on and locate their new answer on a different paper.
-If the students complete all 20 problems correctly, their final answer will be on the paper that has their first problem on the bottom half.
I hope your students enjoy the scavenger hunt. If you're looking for more of them, go to my store because I have created a variety of them for different mathematical concepts. Thank you for your support!
