Here is a fun way for students to practice finding the surface area of a pyramid. Students DO NOT need to know the Pythagorean Theorem or how to find the area of regular polygons with more than 4 sides. There are two versions included. One is a traditional scavenger hunt. The other has the same questions but is sized to fit in an interactive notebook.
If you choose to use it as a traditional scavenger hunt, students answer the questions you have hung around your classroom and then "hunt" for the correct letter on another sign. Students love to move around and will be more focused than you can imagine! The activity is self checking. If all questions are answered correctly, each student should answer all 12 questions and end at the sign they started with. If you choose to use it as an interactive notebook activity, students cut out the 12 signs and the included envelope, answer the questions in the same manner as the scavenger hunt, and then attach the envelope to their notebooks and store the questions in the provided envelope.
★ 12 Scavenger Hunt Signs
★ Interactive notebook version of the signs
★ Envelope to store the questions in an interactive notebook
★ Student worksheet
★ Answer Key
I hope your students enjoy it as much as mine do!
