It's a great review and practice for fourth graders solving multiplication and division multi-step word problems! Plus, this 4th grade math scavenger hunt will get your students up and moving!

The set-up and preparation are super easy and quick.

What’s Included:

  • A 4th grade math scavenger hunt with 14 Solve the Room task cards
  • A Bonus Mini-Set of 6 task cards for a shorter differentiated version - perfect for your lesson opener and guided practice, small groups, RTI groups, or special needs students

How Solve the Room With a Twist Works:

Copy, cut the cards in half and place them around the room. Or, since students will be out of their seats, place the cards on students' seats. That's it for preparation!

  • Students start at any task card. Pairs of students can each start at a different card. It doesn't matter with which card they begin.
  • They read and solve the problem on that card.
  • They locate that answer at the top of a different card and move to that card.
  • They solve the new problem on that task card and locate that answer.
  • Students continue this process until all problems are complete.

The questions and answers on the task cards are designed so that the answer to students' last problem will be on the first problem they solved! So much fun!!

Students self-check themselves as they find their answers. This equals immediate feedback!
