Maths scavenger hunts

The Hunt Is On! Children love the competition of a scavenger hunt with a Maths twist, and it’s also a great way to encourage outside-the-box thinking. This is a truly versatile format that can slot into your lesson whatever age and topic you’re planning for. And don’t despair if the weather takes a turn for the worse. The hunts can easily be adapted to an indoor setting.
A scavenger hunt is a game that is usually played in pairs or a small team, that takes part in a large area – for instance, your school grounds. The teacher will give each of the teams a pre-prepared list of objects that need to be found in that area. With a twist on the usual game, many of these maths hunts will ask children to find and then photograph, or draw, what they have found for each of the items on the list.
