What educators are saying

I used this to review before our decimals test and it was amazing! I love that it was self checking!


Decimal place value is so important to teach and review, but it can get a little boring doing it the same way year after year. Students love to get up and moving around the room with this interactive "scavenger hunt" activity! Use this fun twist on task cards to review decimals to the thousandths place during your decimal unit or for spiral review anytime during the year!

This resource is easy to use! Just print and cut the task cards and display them around the room. Students move from card to card as they search for the answer to each question.

Students will review:

  • identifying the place and value of digits in a decimal
  • reading and writing decimals in standard and word form
  • comparing decimals
  • ordering decimals
  • rounding decimals to the nearest whole number
  • determining decimal and fraction equivalents

This activity includes:

  • 16 colorful task cards
  • 16 printer-friendly task cards (same questions)
  • student recording sheets (2 versions)
  • answer key
  • directions for preparation and use

This resource supports Virginia Math SOL 4.3, but works in any classroom!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.
