Students will practice reading and writing numbers through 6-digits and review place value. Skills include word form, expanded form, standard form, place value, value of the digit, and adding and subtracting from a place (For example, add 10,000 to this number).

1. Print the Number Sense Scavenger Hunt cards on card stock or brightly-colored paper and cut them apart along the dotted lines.

2. Make copies of the Number Sense Scavenger Hunt questions worksheet (2-sided). Each student needs a copy.

3. Place the Number Sense 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 scavenger hunt cards to answer the questions. You can differentiate by having students work alone or with a classmate.

5. Students could also complete this scavenger hunt with a partner by orally reading the large numbers to each other.

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 made the cards a little bit tricky to find. My students enjoy this activity.

**** I have added a small cover page to help you identify your card sets when storing them.
