Scavenger hunt...review game style! Plus what's coming soon!

Happy almost Friday! Thanks everyone for the sweet comments on my one year blogaversary! It means a lot! Also don't forget about my sale going on!
You got two more days to shop, save and get some freebies!

So the other day I did NOT have my observation! I really think my AP was feeling bad for me. On Tuesday I had no voice, Wednesday I sounded like a man, and today it was crackly. It is almost back! The coughing meds are helping and breaking up what's in my chest.

I was sad though she didn't come because my math lesson that day ROCKED. Oh well:( But I want to share the idea with you!

Have you ever done a scavenger hunt around your room? I have before with task cards. I would give students a recording sheet and they would have to go around the room and find the cards and write down the answers on the recording sheet. Then we would all gather back together and go over them. Well, today's scavenger hunt was a bit different! 

I gave each student one of these
a blank PowerPoint handout with 14 slides.

Before we started this lesson I placed 14 questions around the room! By each question was a smaller bag of the questions! 






They took the questions out of the bag, glued them on the blank square and worked on the question right there with their partner. 

I did it this way because there would have been no point of a scavenger hunt if I just gave them the PowerPoint with the questions. I also wanted them to glue the questions on instead of just having a recoding sheet because I wanted them to really work through each problem.

They had so much fun walking around the room with their partner looking for the questions. It took them a good hour, maybe a bit more, to find each question and solve it. I like having movement in my room that also involves learning. It's a lot more fun than just sitting down and doing review problems!

Here are some pictures of them hard at work!




I did not spend too much time on making this unit, so I don't have it in my stores. Is this something any of you would be interested in having? If so, I can work on it to make it sell-able!

I just worked on outlining a few things for the next two weeks. I have some major units I plan on making this weekend! Be on the lookout for...

Nonfiction writing unit
Mass and volume in metric
Comparing and contrasting themes, settings and characters with stories by the same author
Data and graphing project

Very thankful I have some time this weekend! Have a great Friday tomorrow!

  7. What a great engagement strategy - just what me and my kids need during SPRING FEVER! Hey, I'd also like to know if you'd be willing to donate something to my upcoming giveaway celebrating my birthday and gaining 200 followers. I'd be honored if you'd be able to contribute (anything you'd like to offer)!
