Tired of boring worksheets? Get the students up and moving around with this scavenger hunt activity! This activity is on factoring quadratics with three terms when a = 1. My students love to be able to just get up, and this is the perfect way for them to practice factoring and be up moving about!
Print each sheet containing the factors on a piece of cardstock and laminate if you like to reuse. They are already in the correct order in this file, so make sure to mix them up when you post them on your wall.
You can choose to put students in groups, pairs, or individual. Give each group or student a recording sheet for their answers. I let them all do their own recording sheet.
Students choose a trinomial to factor (at the bottom on the cardstock), then locate the factors (at the top of each cardstock) for that trinomial around the room. Then they factor the trinomial at the bottom of that cardstock, and continue in that fashion until all 10 have been worked and they end back up at the original one they started with. If they don’t, they did something wrong.
This activity includes:
10 Scavenger Hunt Cards
Student Recorder Sheet
**There is a lot of color on the Scavenger Hunt cards. I recommend to print on cardstock and laminate. If you would like to message me about altering the activity a bit if you do not have color ink, please do.
