I use relays to review a lot of different subjects in my Algebra 1 classes. This one reviews Chapter 5 of the Prentice Hall CA Algebra 1 textbook: Writing Equations of Lines -- given the slope and y-intercept, given x and y-intercepts, given two points, given a line parallel or perpendicular to the needed line, etc.
Students have fun with Scavenger Hunts. They try hard to find the correct answer so their team can finish first!
It includes instructions of how to use the Scavenger Hunt, a worksheet that students can use to record their answers, and a homework worksheet that reviews simplifying rational expressions, solving rational equations, and review standards from previous chapters.
I also have another Scavenger Hunt with a bit more difficulty. The students have to find the equation of the line that is described, but must identify the GRAPH of the line! You can find it at:
Writing Equations of Lines (Graphs)

Common Core Standard:
Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities.
F-BF 1. Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities.
Previous California Standard for Algebra 1:
7.0 Students verify that a point lies on a line, given an equation of the line. Students are able to derive linear equations by using the point-slope formula.
8.0 Students understand the concepts of parallel lines and perpendicular lines and how those slopes are related. Students are able to find the equation of a line perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point.
