This is a scavenger hunt that can be used as a review for a test or an enrichment activity. All problems cover surface area of the following figures: rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, rectangular pyramids, triangular pyramids and cylinders. There are 10 questions included as well as a recording sheet and answer key!

Post the questions around the room and allow students to choose which one to start with. Once they answer that question, they can find the answer atop another question and proceed to answer all questions. After answering the 10th question, they should arrive back at the beginning!
