Graphing Linear Equations: Scavenger Hunt is a great way to review or practice the concept of graphing linear equations.
For the Scavenger Hunt, print the slides from pages 3-7. Cut them in half, mix up their order, and hang them around the room. There are 10 questions in all.
Have copies of the Student Record Sheet ready to go for each child.
Students work individually or in pairs. They may begin at any question. They will copy and graph the original equation on the Student Record Sheet. Students should walk around the room to locate their graph on another slide. Students will then graph the next equation that appears beside their graph.
When finished, students will end up back where they began, having graphed ten equations. This activity takes approximately 25-45 minutes depending on which method of graphing the students are using.
For those who may be absent during the Scavenger Hunt activity, the Make-Up Worksheet includes the same 10 questions in a format that can be taken home to complete.
