Vocabulary Scavenger Hunt
A fun way for students to learn math vocabulary is to ask them to go on a vocabulary scavenger hunt. Students go out on campus and take pictures that represent the “math in the wild.”
Have students create slides using the template of vocabulary from the unit. Students will enter the vocab word on the top of the slide. Tip to let students choose a selection of the vocab words from the unit.
Students can load the Google Slides app on their mobile device and insert pictures right onto the slide. Using the plus icon at the top, students choose to insert an image from the camera. They can resize the image or crop it to fit in the box on the template slide.
Rather than simply copying a vocabulary word definition into the description box, students should demonstrate understanding of the concept.
