Exponent Scavenger Hunt

It's scavenger hunt time again.  As a way to wrap up and practice our exponent properties, I set up a giant scavenger hunt.  This is seriously the easiest thing even and the kids seem to have fun with it because they get to move around.

I took all these problems...

and put them onto these cards:


taped them all over this hallway:


and gave the kids this sheet:


Every one of them was completely engaged for the entire time practicing exponents.  They didn't finish so tomorrow we'll finish it up.  It's nice to get out of the room and give them space to move around just to switch things up.

  1. This seems like fun. Exponents and Scientific notion were hands down my student's biggest struggle this past year, so I definitely want to make sure I do a better job of presenting it and engaging the students in this topic for the upcoming year.

  2. Love this idea! I'm definitely going to try it with solving simple algebraic expressions! :-)
