Order of Operations Scavenger Hunt provides a fun way to practice the order of operations. The download includes 14 cards for you to tape around your classroom randomly. Students start at any card and solve the problem. They then search for the card with the answer to that problem. The search continues until all 14 problems are solved. As students are traveling around the classroom completing the scavenger hunt, they record their answers on the record sheet. The teacher can then easily check to see if the scavenger hunt was completed correctly by checking that all answers are in the correct order. I love this activity because it gets students out of their seats and moving! It is a great way to have students practice solving decimal word problems, plus students will be having fun!
The download includes the following:
- 14 cards with decimal word problems and answers for you to hang around your classroom.
- Record sheet for students to record their answers
- Answer key
- Directions page
I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine do!
