Do you need a fun way for students to practice simplifying square roots with minimal prep
? The Simplifying Radicals Scavenger Hunt Game gets students up and moving around while practicing math. In this activity, students use the answer to one problem to find another problem hanging around the classroom. Students will complete a total of 16 problems to create a list of mathematicians. You can even extend this activity by having students research one of the mathematicians in the scavenger hunt. This product is self-checking and allows a teacher to work one-on-one with students while the rest of the class is engaged in the scavenger hunt. My students love seeing scavenger hunts on the agenda. This product comes with the student worksheet, scavenger hunt problems, instructions, and teacher’s key. You can find a free video
showing how I introduce a scavenger hunt to my students. Feel free to use this video in your classroom or use it to prepare your lesson.
The problems in this scavenger hunt require students to:
•Simplify square roots of perfect squares
•Simplify square roots of numbers between 12 and 588
•Recognize when a square root cannot be simplified
This product is also included in the Algebra 1 Scavenger Hunt Bundle
and Algebra 2 Scavenger Hunt Bundle
