Estimating Square Roots Activity (to the nearest tenth): Scavenger Hunt
Get your students up and moving! Each student (or pair) will start at one of the papers that are randomly posted around your classroom. They will estimate the square root to the nearest tenth on their student recording sheet. The student recording paper has a number line in which students can write the two perfect squares the square root is between to help estimate. Next, they will look for the solution around the room ON THE TOP of another paper. This is an activity that is engaging with NO prep! Students will know if their answer is right or wrong based on if they can find it around the room. Once the students are back at the paper they start, they are finished.
