This test prep activity has kids out of their seats and focusing on word problems. These twelve highly engaging problems create a scavenger hunt. Each answer leads students to the next problem. Just print, cut, and hang around the room and see who can make it to the end of Math and the Zombie Apocalypse!
The problems are cumulative for fifth grade, and would also make an excellent beginning of the year review for sixth grade. It could be used in a center or as a whole-class activity.
No color printer? No worries. They still look good in black and white; just choose to print the file in grayscale.
Pair this hunt with Math at the Movies: A No-Prep Test Prep Scavenger Hunt and you'll have reviewed nearly all of the fifth grade CCSS standards!
