Scavenger hunts are great because they get students up and moving around the room. They also encourage students to check their work carefully since an incorrect answer will leave them stuck at a dead end. Successfully completing the scavenger hunt requires students to slow down and check their work.
In this activity, students will solve problems using the circumference and area of circles. A few of the problems ask students to find the radius, given the diameter or find the diameter, given the radius. These problems are included to remind students to be careful and not just "plug in" to a formula. All of the answers to the circumference and area problems are given in decimal form. Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students - download the preview and look at the thumbnails to see all of the problems.
There are 11 stations. Two versions of the stations are given: full color and black and white. A student answer sheet and answer key are included.
This activity can be completed individually or in pairs. A student answer sheet is included. Each student or group is given an answer sheet, then assign them a station where they will start. Students will copy the letter of the station where they begin, then they will solve the problem. After solving the problem, students will "hunt" for the next card that contains their answer from the previous problem. They will continue working in this fashion. When they have correctly solved all 11 problems, they will end with the station where they began.
