Students are asked to find fractional parts of a set. Two complete scavenger hunts are included to allow for differentiation. One set groups each set into the number of parts asked for in the word problem. The other set simply shows the entire set as a visual aid to solving the word problem.

More about the Product
With the Scavenger Hunt game I have the students complete it as part of a rotation during math groups or centers. I only have 4 or 5 students walking around with clipboards to locate the sentence cards and write their answers. Students needing extra support can be paired with a partner for this activity. I have also done similar activities with the whole class or as a filler for early finishers, especially if you made the cards a little bit tricky to find. My students enjoy this activity.
