### Description

Are you looking for a fun lesson to engage your students with Order of Operations, and hold their attention before Thanksgiving? These whimsical Turkey Task Cards include a fun riddle to keep your students engaged, and are no-prep for you!

In this Google Slides activity, students evaluate expressions to solve a Thanksgiving-themed riddle. As they solve the problems, the answers spell the solution to the riddle. There are decoy cards to make the challenge a little greater!

There are 12 cards practicing Order of Operations tasks. Two are word problems where the students write the expression and evaluate it. Five cards ask students to read an expression written in word form and to write the expression and evaluate it. Five cards ask students to evaluate expressions. There are problems with parentheses and brackets, but no exponents, so this meets the fifth grade CCSS Standard, or makes a great review for 6th grade!

They are versatile and easy to use. Use for:

-Centers

-Gallery Walk style Scavenger Hunt

-Intervention groups

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity. For example, describe the expression 2 (8 + 7) as a product of two factors; view (8 + 7) as both a single entity and a sum of two terms.
