Captain Nemo’s Treasure Hunt Description

Treasure Hunt Goals: To develop students’ Skills with:
• Applying ratios to meet a real world, problem-solving challenge
• Measuring accurately in centimeters
• Multiplying by decimals

Captain Nemo’s Treasure Hunt is a highly engaging problem-solving activity that challenges students to use the ratio 2:5 in order to solve this simple riddle: “What do you get when you cross an elephant with a shark?” The activity begins when students discover Captain Nemo’s Code Book and Map. The code book requires students to measure the length of various swords in centimeters, and then, by applying the ratio 2:5 and compass headings, navigate a treasure map while collecting the clues needed to the solve this riddle.

A Special Ruler
Not every printer, or copier, will reproduce the measurements of the swords and the streets accurately, making a centimeter ruler useless for the task. Therefore, a “Special Ruler” has been included which will remain proportional and allow for the accurate measuring of both the swords in the code book and the streets on the map.

This challenge contains the following materials:
• Captain Nemo’s Code Book
• Captain Nemo’s Treasure Map
• Captain Nemo’s Treasure Map: List of Clues (Optional Student Handout)
• Lesson Plans
• Two Answer Sheets: The Solution to the Riddle and Correct Route to Travel on
Captain Nemo’s Treasure Map
• A Special Ruler

It is my sincere hope that you and your students will thoroughly enjoy this journey while…
