These 16 task cards are designed to be posted around the room, outside, or in the hallways. The area and perimeter task cards link to each other based on student answers. Students use their answers to “hunt” for the next area and perimeter task card! So fun and engaging.'I wish math was this engaging when I was in school!' -J. SadlerClick To Tweet
How do you engage students without losing rigor?
Is that possible…
…of course it is, and you have it happen all the time in your class.
The task card scavenger hunt creates the right amount of physical movement for students to really enjoy the task.
It’s not just about a fun activity. It is rigorous and well-aligned to the TEKS and CCSS standards.
Area and Perimeter Scavenger Hunt Includes:
16 Task Cards focused on the application of area and perimeter skills. Students will find surface area, missing length, and perimeter of two-dimensional polygons. There are 9 Perimeter Problems and 7 Area Problems. The scavenger hunt also includes:
Area and Perimeter Scavenger Hunt aligns with TEKS and CCSS Standards:
TEKS 5.4H : represent and solve problems related to perimeter and/or area and related to volume.
CCSS: 4.M.D.A3: Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
CCSS: 7.G.B.6: Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.Why choose boring instructional strategies?

I guess these standards could be taught in different non-engaging ways…
…or you could use an active learning approach that engages students’ minds and bodies! That’s what this scavenger hunt is designed to do. Here’s how…
Why Sit and Work?
When you can get the same learning by walking around, interacting with peers, and having fun!
What a great activity for practice or review!
