I use Scavenger Hunts to review a lot of different subjects in my classes. I use this one to practice solving rational equations. The problems have a varying degree of difficulty. A couple require solving a quadratic equation. I have an easier review here: Alg 1 Solving Rational Equations Scavenger Hunt
I use this to practice solving rational equations in my Algebra 1 classes. I also use it in Algebra 2 classes. Rather than given a lesson to review this topic, I give them this Scavenger Hunt and let the student remember how to evaluate all on their own. I really like this method because it seems like they remember it better, and they have a lot more fun than simply listening to another lesson of a previously learned concept.
Students have fun with Scavenger Hunts. They try hard to find the correct answer so their team can finish first!
It includes instructions of how to use the Scavenger Hunt, a worksheet that students can use to record their answers, and a homework worksheet that reviews the same subject.

A-REI 2. Solve simple rational and radical equations in one variable, and give examples showing how extraneous solutions may arise.
A-APR 7. Understand that rational expressions form a system analogous to the rational numbers, closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division by a nonzero rational expression; add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational expressions.
Previous California Standards for Algebra 1:
12.0 Students simplify fractions with polynomials in the numerator and denominator by factoring both and reducing them to the lowest terms.
13.0 Students add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational expressions and functions. Students solve both computationally and conceptually challenging problems by using these techniques.
