Classroom Hunting!

Who doesn't LOVE a good scavenger hunt?  In my classroom, anytime my kids see cards laying around the room, they are instantly engaged!  I recently updated a few of my older products and have been using them with a couple of tutoring groups after school.

Not only do my students love a good classroom hunt, but so do I.  They require very minimal preparation and are self checking for students.  It allows me to set my higher students free and assist my lower students as needed.  

I always begin by hiding the cards around the room.  I never tell them where the "Start" card is hidden.  They take their clip boards and recording sheets and make their way around the room.  After they find the "Start" card, they solve the problem given.  Once they have a confident answer to their problem, they make their way around the room and search for the answer.  This can be entertaining.  ;)

In the upper right hand corner of the card is the answer to the prior problem.  On this particular card, the quotient to the previous problem was 27.  When the student finds 27, they will quickly and quietly write down and solve the problem.  When they solve the problem shown above, they will discover that the quotient to this problem is 67.  Therefore, they will take off in search of the answer 67.  When they have successfully solved all of the problems, one answer will lead them to The END!
