Product Description
MATH, MATH EVERYWHERE!! is a fantastic Back-To-School or End of the Year Outdoor Scavenger Hunt and SIDEWALK SCOOT activity! It’s also a fun activity to use if you teach a summer school program or work as a summer tutor. Get your students outside to practice their math skills! This Scavenger Hunt and SIDEWALK SCOOT is such a hit with our students! In those first days of school, it's great to get the students up and moving and as the school year winds down, it’s a great way to keep students motivated, while letting them enjoy some time outside.

Students go outside equipped with their Scavenger Hunt packet affixed to a clipboard, and a pencil. That’s all they need to successfully finish the hunt. I keep a basket of rulers and protractors handy for when they are needed. Students can work alone, in pairs, or small groups. Students are asked to assemble somewhere on the grounds of the school campus, and are asked to use the Scavenger Hunt to do the following:

• Count and tally objects
• List math vocabulary terms
• Find examples of geometric shapes, lines, and angles
• Find and sketch symmetrical objects
• Sketch and label objects that can be measured in inches, feet, and yards
• Use a ruler to record measurements in inches and centimeters
• Use a protractor to record angle measurements
• Label angles

My basket also contains sidewalk chalk, so students can play “SIDEWALK SCOOT!” Simply assemble on the sidewalk, and assign each student a “square” of sidewalk. Students number and create a math problem of whatever operation you’ve taught within their sidewalk square. Students solve the problem on scrap paper attached to a clipboard, record their answer on the recording sheet (included), and at the sound of the bell, they scoot to another problem. Between the Scavenger Hunt and SIDEWALK SCOOT, our last week of school is always the BEST week of school!

Remember to create boundaries for the Scavenger Hunt. We usually start at the playground, and then as a group walk to another area on campus.

NOTE: Usually I break up the Scavenger Hunt and SIDEWALK SCOOT into 2 separate activities. I teach Resource Room, so I pick and choose which pages of the Scavenger Hunt I use for any given class. The hunt is appropriate for students in Grades 2-5, depending on your students’ skill level.
