This scavenger hunt is an awesome alternative to having students do a worksheet at their desks. It gets students up and moving while still having them solve problems where they have to multiply fractions. There are 20 stations in the scavenger hunt.
Here are the directions:
-Print off and hang the scavenger hunt around your classroom with tape in a random order.
-Print off and pass out an accountability sheet for each student or make sure they have notebook paper to record the problems.
-Disperse the students so there is not more than 1 or 2 students at each problem.
-For the first problem, the students will ignore the top half of the paper and do the problem found on the bottom half of the paper they start at.
-Once they solve the problem and record it on their accountability sheets or in their notebooks, they must find the answer that will be located on the top half of one of the papers in the scavenger hunt.
-They now will solve the problem on the bottom half of the new paper they found their answer on and locate their new answer on a different paper. The answers will always be at the top half, and the problems will always be on the bottom half of each paper.
-If the students complete all 20 problems correctly, their final answer will be on the paper that has their first problem on the bottom half. Have the students turn in their accountability sheets.
*** Note that the papers are in order in this document. The problem on the bottom half of each sheet is followed by its answer on the top half of the next sheet.
As soon as I do a scavenger hunt with one of my classes, they beg to do more. If your students enjoyed this one, then check out the other scavenger hunts I have created in my store. I also have one for dividing fractions! Thank you!
