This is a fun and self-checking way for students to practice adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. Instead of addition or subtraction symbols, each card has directions to find the sum of the two fractions or to find the difference between the two fractions.You can have your students work individually or with partners to complete this activity. Students start at any card, solve the problem, then search for the card with their answer. Students record the letter of the card with the answer and solve the new problem. All answers are proper fractions. Some of the answers need to be simplified.
This file has twelve camping/fishing themed cards, a student recording sheet with directions, and an answer key. This scavenger hunt works well as a small group station and as a whole group activity.
