Exponents Scavenger Hunt

This activity gets students out of their seats. Students get to work at their own pace and think it's a game. They are highly motivated to complete a question since they can self-check and get immediate feedback.

Students will complete a problem and then look for the answer on top of a different card. Students can complete this in pairs, small groups, or individually. Can be used whole group or in a center. If you laminate the cards, they will stand up like tents on the desks.
