This APRIL Earth Day themed CRACK THE CODE is sure to bring a lot of excitement and fun to your classroom! 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!

In this challenge, students will be reading passages, solving math problems, using a code breaker to decode secret messages, and participating in a stem activity!

GRADES 1-5 included in this ONE BUNDLE

**Section for Grades 1-2 (Math includes finding number patters and 2 digit and 1 digit addition)

**Section for Grades 3-5 (Math includes division of a 3 digit number by a 1 digit number, 1 digit by 1 digit multiplication option as well as a 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication option)

The only additional materials you will need aside from what's printed is an empty paper towel roll, a heavy book, one piece of paper, and one small piece of tape for each group. Everything else you need for this activity is right here in this product, all you have to do is print.

If you have a breakout kit and would like to incorporate locks there are many ways you could do that! :-)

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!
