This scavenger hunt has to do with writing expressions from 10 real-world situations. The students will be given a real-world situation (i.e. a rectangle with a height of 6 and base of m) and write an expression that represents the area or perimeter.
Scavenger hunts are a great change of pace from the norms of a typical math class. It allows the students to get up and out of their seats, work collaboratively, and have fun trying to decode the days secret message. Each of my scavenger hunts come with an "Answer Decoder" sheet, Answer Key, and 10 problems to cut out and put up around your classroom, hallways, or even outside if the weather and school permits. Scavengers hunts typically take up between 15 to 30 minutes of class time.
