Shapes Around Us Scavenger Hunt

This lesson was used by Heather Jacobs in her 6th grade math classes. Students were put in groups, and used the iPads to record their data as they moved throughout the building. The lesson students worked from is shared below:

Circular Measuring

Your group will need to decipher the clue to figure out where the object you need to measure is located.
Your group will need to measure the radius, diameter, and circumference of the circular object.
Your group will need to record your data below each clue. Indicating which is which measurement.
Only one group at a location at a time. If another group is already there you will need to move on to another location. Or wait QUIETLY outside. There should never be two groups in one location.
Once done, come back to class and calculate area of each shape and record.
Add your names to your document.
