Description

This Beginning of the Year Unlock the Box Mystery is a great way to welcome your students back to school! They will use teamwork and problem solving skills to solve the clues and unlock the box for a special surprise.

Simply fill a box with a special treat - pencils, erasers, lollipops, etc. I put my students' beginning of year gifts in the box for this Unlock the Box Mystery. Then, use a 4-digit lock to lock the box. Students will need to solve and answer 4 clues.

In this activity, your students will get to know each other, explore your classroom, and solve puzzles.

Set-up is really easy! Just put the clues into envelopes and give them to the groups of students as they finish the previous clue. The answer to the last clue will unlock the box.

This product includes:

  • Category Cards to Form Groups
  • 4 Clues that Require Teamwork and Problem Solving
  • A Teacher Cheat Sheet
