ANSWER KEY INCLUDED!!!
Get your students out of their desks and moving!
Objective: Students will show their ability write a number given in standard form in scientific notation and vice-versa.
Instructions: Print out the following 12 pages, single sided. Make a copy for each student or group. Post the 10 scavenger sheets around the classroom with tape or thumb tacks. Students start at an sheet and write the number down (either scientific or standard form). They will find the poster with the number they just wrote written in the other form and write that answer down. Repeat till the answer key is filled and all posters have been visited.
Print on colored pages, card stock, or laminate
As you post, mix up the order!
Post around your room/hallway in a random order
Allow students to work in groups of 2 or 3 (still make each student complete the answer sheet)
Use the hunt as a warm-up, closing activity, review day activity, or as part of a quiz
Some students may not enjoy working standing up so I allow those students to take a picture of the posters with iPads to work on at their desk
Play some music! (school appropriate of course)
Create competition by rewarding the first group to accurately complete the answer sheet (high fives are great prizes)
