Exponents Scavenger Hunt

Common Core State Standards
6.EE.1 Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents

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

The teacher puts the 10 question cards around the room. Students work in pairs. They each start at a different card. 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. I have included a student response sheet that they fill in as they move around to each card.

 It is similar to the I have, who has, but students can work at their own pace.

Exponents go up to 4. All problems are made so students do not need a calculator.
