This scavenger hunt on Rational Number Operations is a fun way to engage students in adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions and decimals! 6th Grade, 7th Grade, and 8th Grade are built on operations with rational numbers.

The scavenger hunt is a game task made of 16 task cards. The game allows students to get out of their seats and move from task card to task card looking for the answer to each multi-step problem. If their answer is incorrect, they will not find what they are looking for, and they will be forced to work the rational number problem again!

This is an interactive and kinesthetic activity for teaching and practicing rational numbers. The scavenger hunt makes it more of a game-like activity which keeps students engaged in the lesson being presented.


Rational Number Operations Scavenger Hunt includes:

-16 task cards that link from one to the next

-All four operations
