All you need to do is print out and post the 20 Multiply and Divide Fractions 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.
