Create your own engaging task card scavenger hunt using ANY set of task cards. The first thing you want to do is pull out, purchase, or make a set of task cards. They don’t have to be fancy; they may be typed or handwritten.
I so many bags of task cards it is ridiculous. My collection is eclectic; some are: laminated, printed on card stock, printed on copy paper, printed on color paper, printed with color ink, printed with black and white ink, handwritten, full page cards, ¼ page cards, created by students, purchased on TpT, etc.
I usually place one task card on each desk in my classroom. If my cards are not laminated, I will slip them into sheet protectors to keep my students from writing on them.
Using a set of task cards you will create a student record sheet by writing the answers in a random order on one of the four free templates. Your students will solve a task card, and then match the card number to the correct answer. Next, they hunt for their answer on the record sheet you created. If they find a matching answer, they write the task card number in the left corner of the box with the matching answer. If they don’t find a matching answer, students know instantly they did not solve the task correctly.
I LOVE that this task gives students immediate feedback on their work. My students turn to their peers and me for assistance when they are unable to correct their mistakes. I am able to have short, meaningful conferences with students as they come to me for help.
