Solving Equations with Variables Both Sides Scavenger Hunt Activity


This unique scavenger hunt activity will have your students solving multi-step equations all across your school! Students hunt down and collect creatures by solving equations with variables on both sides. 


The scavenger hunt activity begins with a story to introduce the Pentagruel society to the students, then students are given Pentagruel Collection Books and Pentagruel Guide Books. The Collection Book is where students will work out the solving equations problems, and the Guide Books allow the students to read more about the individual types of Pentagruels they are collecting!


Once students have their collection books, they go on a hunt to find the QR Code Cards posted around the school. When they find one, they can scan it and a solving multi-step equations problem will appear! They will record & work the problem in their collection in order to collect that Pentagruel!
