Place value scavenger hunt

October 24, 2011

Have fun in math class by having your students go on a place value scavenger hunt. Ashleigh at Ashleigh’s Education Journey makes cards that ask students to browse print resources and answer questions or locate examples, such as, “Find a number with a 4 in the thousands place.” Students in her class search through an almanac and record answers to match the card but in your classroom, you can give students different types of reading materials based on their interests, such as a newspaper, chemistry book, magazines, blog, or manual. I love the fact that different students can have different hunt forms or goals and that every student could choose their own materials to search.
