This set of cards can be used in high school geometry Each card has a problem displayed in the center of the card and an answer to another problem, in a magnifying glass, at the bottom right of the card. By using the 10 cards that have a ♡ at the bottom you will have 10 cards in the scavenger hunt. By using the 10 cards that have a ♧ at the bottom you will have a different 10 card scavenger hunt. If you use the 20 cards with a ♢ you will have a combined scavenger hunt with 20 cards.
Suggestions for working with the cards:
1. Post the cards around the classroom (either a set of 10 ♡ or ♧ problems or 20 ♢ problems).
2. Assign different students to start at different numbers. Distribute copies of the student recording sheet. Students should record the number of the card they are working on in the small square at the top left of the grid. When they have come up with an answer to the problem they then go on a scavenger hunt to find a new card with their answer in the bottom right corner of the card. If they can’t find their answer they need to check their work again. When they find their answer on a card, they record that number in the next square on their recording sheet and solve the new problem. Students keep working on problem for the allotted time.
3. The last two cards show the cycle for the 10 card and 20 card scavenger hunts.
4. The goal would be to complete as many questions as they can in the allotted amount of time.
5. Awards can be given for the number of problems completed by each student.
