Decimal Pemdas Scavenger Hunt

This is a great game to play to practice all four operations with decimals. It has basic order of operations without exponents.

Each card only has them do two operations. The teacher puts the 10 question cards around the room. Once they get the answer, they will know which card to go to next. Each card also has a letter. At the end, they unscramble the letters to spell a secret word.

This activity is motivating and gets students out of their seats.
