Get your students moving around the room while practicing solving equations using this fun scavenger hunt! Just print and post the problems around your classroom and have students start wherever they choose. The answer to each problem leads students to the next, culminating when they have solved all twelve problems correctly. Students can self-check when they get an answer that is not on any of the other problems and will not be able to move forward until they have figured it out.
This activity includes a mix of traditional "solve for x" equations and word problems where the student will need to interpret and write the equation before solving. Also included are a printable student answer sheet and answer key with step-by-step instructions--great for those days when you have a substitute who may not be as mathematically strong as you'd like.
