Math fun & a freebie!

Tomorrow is Good Friday, and as a result of the crazy Texas weather.....we have to go to school.  That snow day isn't sounding so fun anymore.
An extra day with my kids means some extra fun!  We've been working so hard getting ready for the STAAR; they deserve a break.  We're having a "Spring celebration" tomorrow, complete with Takis,

 nachos, pickle-flavored Pringles (their request)
movie, and an easter egg hunt.  Cause what says Happy Easter better than junk food?!

Before all those shenanigans, we will be reviewing (seems to be a common theme this time of year.)  I thought a scavenger hunt would be a fun way to practice multi-step word problems.  Basically all the answers to these multi-step problems are room numbers at our school.  They will solve their problems, and the answer will tell them what room number they will find their next question.  Pretty simple!  I also added QR codes in there because I'm always looking for meaningful ways to integrate technology.  So, they'll work in pairs with their iPad and recording sheet to work through all 8 problems.  Click the picture to download this freebie.  Directions are included.  There is also a non-QR version embedded in the file.

In order for this to work, you'll have to have the same room numbers as us.  Otherwise, just use it as a self-checking workstation.  Leave me a comment & let me know if your students enjoyed it!  
Hoppy Friday!  


  1. I love these! I teach 4th grade in Texas, but I could SO use these with some of my kids. Thanks for the feeble!! ;)

    1. Yay, I hope y'all have fun with them. Good luck to you and your kids next week on the STAAR!!
