Product Description
Systems of Equations Using Elimination:

This is a scavenger hunt on solving systems of equations using elimination. There are 16 questions, a student recording sheet, and an answer key.

To play:
1) Cut each question page in half to separate the question boxes. You will have 16 questions! Each question gives students a system of equations problem to solve.
2) Hang the 16 questions around the classroom. Tip: Hang them in a random order, not in the order they are placed in this document! The more random the positioning, the more students will move around.
3) Make enough copies of the recording sheets for each student or each group of students.
4) Divide students up into groups of 2-3 students.
5) Cut out the sheet of answers. Give each group one of the answers (you can put them in a hat and let each group draw on out, or you can just hand them out). The number tells them where to start. Numbers are on the upper left hand side of each question box.
6) Each group of students will begin at their assigned spot. They will work together to solve the problem on the card, and record their answers on the recording sheet. Once they have solved their first problem, they will go to the card that has the answer to the problem they just solved on it. They will continue moving around the classroom answer questions until they have completed all 16 questions.

***One set of scavenger hunt cards have QR codes on them. When scanned they will tell students the answer to the question so students can check their answer and make sure they move on to the correct problem!

QR code scanners can be downloaded for free onto apple products (like IPhones, IPods, IPads, and many smart phones. I use the app “scan life” that is available in the google store for android phones.

This item is also available as part of a bundle of scavenger hunts found here: Scavenger Hunt Bundle and as part of a System of Equations Bundle found here: Systems of Equations Unit Bundle
