My math students love our box of mystery! This is done during the first week of school to see what my new fifth graders remember from fourth grade math.
To complete this Box of Mystery, you will need a 4 digit lock that you can set to the combination needed for this activity.
Each group gets 1 of 4 puzzle pieces. The puzzle piece has 4th grade math problems on it. The answers spell out where the next puzzle piece is hidden in the school. They will go find that puzzle piece, complete the math problems on it, and then be led to another area of the school.
My students LOVE this opportunity to solve math and leave the classroom to go get puzzle pieces! (Included is a version where students stay in your room if it isn't feasible for them to leave, but if they can leave, I recommend it as it makes this SO MUCH FUN!)
The four puzzle pieces will end up giving the combination to the 4 digit lock that is on your "box of mystery." The team then gets into the box and collects whatever is inside!
I cannot tell you how much fun my own students have with "Box of Mystery!" As a teacher, I love seeing how much math they remember from 4th grade as it helps me plan my fifth grade math year!
