I BAT you will love this October/Halloween themed CRACK THE CODE! Crack the Codes allow students to feel success in all academic areas, while working hard to collaborate, persevere, and problem solve with their peers. Crack the Codes take students on a "scavenger hunt" style game where six clue cards will need to be located and solved. This resource includes options for grades 1st through 5th where you can pick and choose whichever clue cards best suit your students! Here is a closer look at what types of challenges are included in this Crack the Code!
Grades 4 & 5
Grades 2 & 3
In this challenge, students will be reading passages (multiple reading levels included), solving math problems (multiple levels included), using a letter decoder to decode secret messages, participating in a stem activity of creating a candy pumpkin/toothpick tower, and collecting Frankenstein pieces throughout the breakout in order to create their own Frankenstein.
The only additional supplies you will need in addition to printing this PDF is candy pumpkins and toothpicks for the STEM challenge!
For grades 1st-2nd you can do this whole class as a Crack the Code or you could use each clue card as a CENTER. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need a modification. Thanks!
