Math Scavenger Hunt

We are challenging all students to find the most items based on the riddles given within their own personal space (i.e. home.) Use the different math concepts embedded in the riddles to help you find these objects for the scavenger hunt. While this is a remote scavenger hunt, all of these things should be easily located in one home. Let’s Begin!
