This product includes 24 interesting and true fact cards and a student recording sheet.
Teachers should cut apart the 24 fact cards and place them randomly around the classroom. This activity is intended to be like a scavenger hunt for students. The student recording sheet should be copied front-to-back and each student (or student pair) should have one sheet.
The students will move around the classroom searching for the different facts and recording the information on their sheet. They will need to either convert numbers to scientific notation or to standard form. Students should have a solid background knowledge of how to convert very small and very large numbers to scientific notation or standard form.
My students love moving around the classroom searching for the facts and they enjoy learning new facts. This activity helps relate scientific notation to their world outside of school.
