Product Description
Place Value Math Mystery: the Case of The Puzzled Pirate -1st Grade Edition. Students must review place value math skills to help puzzled pirate find the treasure!
NO PREP, print and go!
(Please note that the Grade 1 math mysteries contain a smaller possibilities list, and include profile pictures with the information).

Students must use their math skills to unlock clues. Then, use their powers of deduction to narrow down the list of locations to find the treasure

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Optional video hook included for introducing the case!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preparation
- No Prep required! Print the student pages, staple or place
in a folder, and your students are set to go.
- Have the video hook ready for viewing at the start of the
lesson on an IWB, iPad or computer monitor screen.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Math Skills Required to Unlock Clues
There are five clues to crack to solve the mystery:

Clue 1: Counting objects
Clue 2: Place Value Models (up to 20 only)
Clue 3 : Comparing Double-Digit Numbers (Circle the greater number)
Clue 4 : Ordering Numbers between 1-50 (ascending order)
Clue 5: Numbers as Tens and Ones

Students must use critical thinking skills to figure out what the clue is telling them to eliminate from the list of possibilities.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Multiple Uses
- Suitable for independent, pairs, or group work.
I recommend pacing this activity by giving students one clue at a time. Once the whole class has completed a clue, then move on to the next clue either within the same lesson or the next math session. New math content presented? Make a lesson out of it by modeling the math before diving into the clue. I like to say, "we must learn something new before attempting the next clue."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How long will this activity take?
Time to complete will vary anywhere between 30mins - 2 hours or more! It mainly depends on how familiar your students are with the math mystery format, as well as how difficult they find math skills covered in the particular mystery. Please check the math skills outlined in the clues above to help determine suitability for your class.
