Part, Whole, and Percent Scavenger Hunt
A Scavenger Hunt is motivating and gets students out of their seats. This involves word problems that ask students to find the percent, the part, or the whole. All percents go up to 100 and every problem is single step. This activity is for an introduction to this topic which is usually 6th grade.

**Cards will print in back and white. You will copy then onto color paper.

Students love this activity because they
–get to move around.

Students can complete this in pairs, small groups, or individually. Each student starts at a different card. The answer to the question inside the card is on the front of another card. Students work at their own pace. Each card also has a letter. At the end, they unscramble the letters to spell a mystery word.
