Scavenger hunts are a great way to get kids up and moving in an organized manner while practicing the content. In this activity, students will use pictorial models, number lines, and the standard algorithm to solve 24 MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION fraction word problems. There are 6 MULTI-STEP problems included in this scavenger hunt which will require students to multiply, divide, add and/or subtract. Follow the steps below to complete this activity.
1. Print out the cards, mix them up, and tape each problem to the walls within your classroom, school hallway, library, or cafeteria. (Be sure to provide adequate space between problems so that student groups have enough space to work without being disturbed.
2. Group students in pairs and assign each team a starting problem. (I personally like groups of 2 but 3 can work also.)
3. Each team will solve and document the answer on the recording sheet in the appropriate lettered box.
4. Students must “hunt” for the correct answer to the problem. The answer is located on one of the problem sheets in a box labeled “prior answer.”
5. Once the answer is located, students will begin solving the new problem located on the page. Teams will follow this procedure until all problems are complete.
