Algebra 2 scavenger hunt

March 23, 2011

Do you want to surprise students with something different tomorrow? How about setting up a scavenger hunt and inviting students to shuffle around the room, solve problems, and socialize? We found this Algebra 2 lesson idea on Square Root of Negative One Teach Math. As the game is described, students already have built-in peer supports but you could also differentiate by providing different hunt forms to different groups. In other words, not every pair needs to have the same directions or materials.

Consider tweaking other favorite party games to create learning opportunities in the classroom. Bingo games, for instance, can be used to review new vocabulary words. How might you use charades, Simon Says, or even relay races to teach, review content, and keep students engaged?

    Thanks for sharing this! I love the way that this game can be used for any math topic and probably any subject (history, languages etc) and as you said it’s so easy to integrate some differentiation into the game.

    Parents could also use this at home with their children as a revision game.
