This product includes three math number line activities.
**** Please note that the Number Lines Scavenger Hunt is the same as the one sold separately.****
Number Lines Scavenger Hunt
With this scavenger hunt students will explore number lines using their knowledge of addition, subtraction, and even multiplication.
20 scavenger hunt cards
1. Print the Number Lines Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock or brightly-colored paper and cut them apart along the dotted lines.
2. Make copies of the Number Lines Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet (2-sided). Each student needs a copy.
3. Place the Number Lines Scavenger Hunt cards around your classroom where students will be able to find them. You can put them on chairs, on the computer keyboard, on the back of your classroom door, on the sides of student desks, on the chalkboard, or wherever you like.
4. Students have to search the room and find all of the sentence cards to answer the questions. You can differentiate by having students work alone or with a classmate.
With the Scavenger Hunt game I have the students complete it as part of a rotation during math groups. I only have 4 or 5 students walking around with clipboards to locate the sentence cards and write their answers. Students needing extra support can be paired with a partner for this activity. I have also done similar activities with the whole class or as a filler for early finishers, especially if you make the cards a little bit tricky to find. My students enjoy this activity.
Share, Share, Switch
Includes 18 cards for student use. No other materials are needed.
1. Cut out the cards. Laminate for longer usability. Teachers, if you have more than 18 students, you can copy a set of cards more than once.
2. Students pair up to share the questions on the cards.
Player One shows his card to Player Two, keeping his right thumb over the answer in the bottom right hand corner. If Player Two answers correctly, Player One gives praise or compliments. If Player Two answers incorrectly, the pair work to figure out the mistake.
3. Then Player Two shows her card for Player One covering the answer with her thumb. After both cards are understood, the players switch cards and find new partners.
4. Students can meet with partners more than once as long as they have both had a chance to get a new card.
5. Students can also use these cards for independent practice, self-check by removing thumb from answer!
20 Scoot cards
Student answer sheet
1. Cut out each numbered question card and place one randomly on each student’s desk and/or in other locations around the room.
2. Copy the answer sheet and give one to each student.
3. Each student starts at an assigned spot and answers that question. Be sure students record the response on the answer sheet by the correct space! Everyone cannot start at one!
4. On your command of “Scoot” (or whatever signal you choose) each student moves one seat over in the direction you have chosen for the game. You may wish to explain the route carefully and even practice moving first before students begin to write.)
5. The students continue moving along the route of the game until they have answered every question and have returned to their original spot.
