Have fun at the beginning of the school year with this Unlock the Box Mystery. Your students 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.
Put the clues into envelopes and give them to the groups of students when they are ready for them. The answer to the last clue will unlock the box.
