Mix it up a little and have some fun reviewing your fractions and decimal unit with this “print and go” scavenger hunt. The Common Core Standards are listed for your reference along with the learning objectives for the lesson.
All you need to do is print out and post the 20 Fractions and Decimals Scavenger Hunt task cards around the room or hide them to increase the challenge. Either way, students will have fun solving these problems as an end-of-unit review. Play some fast tempo music or set the timer to get kids pumped up for the challenge.
This lesson was designed with fifth graders in mind; however, it can be used for fourth graders needing a challenge or sixth graders needing a review. Through this activity, students will practice the following: (1) determine the common factors and the greatest common factor of a set of numbers (2) generate equivalent fractions by writing a fraction in simplest form (3) determine the common multiples and the least common multiple of a set of numbers (4) compare fractions by using the least common denominator and (5) use fraction equivalence to write fractions as decimals.
