Printable mental math team games BUNDLE for fractions of a set, percents of a number, adding and subtracting decimals, multiplication of 3 factors, and dividing with multiples of 10, 100 and 1000. These 5 scavenger hunt / treasure hunt - type trail activities were originally designed for 4th and 5th Grade and for review at 6th Grade, but they may suit other grades too, depending on your curriculum and abilities - please see the previews to check suitability for your students. Ideal as a whole class starter or finishing activity, each game can be played multiple times in a lesson or across several lessons as groups can use different card sets each time. Teams complete a treasure hunt-type chain of calculations on the math topic, followed by a 'Find the Target Number' mental math challenge, using a mixture of the four operations. All files in PDF format.
In each of the five packets, there are 54 double-sided cards, forming sets of 6 cards for 9 teams. A key feature is the chance to involve lower ability students in a fun whole class activity to give them a boost of confidence without it being obvious their calculations are less challenging (3 of the 9 sets in each packet are at an easier level). Full instructions for teacher and students are included, along with answer keys.
Each of the 5 Scavenger Hunt Activity packets are also available separately:
Dividing with Multiples of 10, 100, 1000
In each of these activities, students collaborate on a treasure hunt type math trail and when they’ve collected all 5 answers, they are given a target, which they must make using 3 given numbers. You can print and laminate the cards in batches of 3 sets, so if you don’t require them all, you needn’t print them. The cards should be printed double-sided (they have been laid out to facilitate this). I print by selecting the ‘2-Sided Short Edge (Top)’ option. However, if you can only print one-sided, print all the even-numbered pages, replace the paper or card stock, and print the odd-numbered pages on the back.
Give each team their ‘Start’ card. Spread out all other cards, answer side up. You may wish to remove cards from any set not being used, although this is not necessary. On your signal, teams turn over their Start card and complete the calculation. Each team sends one person to collect the correct answer card, on the other side of which will be their next question and a letter to confirm which team it belongs to. Ensure teams immediately replace any cards not marked with their letter. The process continues until the team have answered all five calculations. On the other side of the final answer card will be a target number, which teams must make, using the numbers printed in boxes in the bottom right corner of 3 of their cards. Use all 3 numbers and only once each, using any of the 4 operations. The first to make their target number wins! One possible answer for each of the target challenges is printed on the solution cards.
