Percent Word Problems Scavenger Hunt provides a fun way to practice solving percent word problems involving finding the missing part or whole. The download includes 12 cards for you to tape around your classroom. 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 12 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 percent word problems, plus students will be having fun!
The download includes the following:
- 12 cards with percent 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!
