This is an around the world activity also known as a scavenger hunt. It has 12 word problems that are either consecutive integers or age problems. All of the problems are linear. The consecutive integers problems require students to setup the correct equation and then solve. The age problems require students to setup two correct equations and use substitution method to solve. Students love this activity because they get to move around the room!
How the Activity Works:
•Each page is printed and put up around the room (not in order).
•Students can start at any location.
•The top half of the sheet is the answer to a different problem and the bottom half is the problem that they should work on.
•After they calculate their answer, they find the page around the room that has the answer and go there for their next problem, then repeat.
•Students should write down their work and answer for each problem to turn in.
•Students should end up at the problem that they started on.
