I created this game after reading an article about how boys need a whole different kind of learning environment to be successful. Here is a link to the article if you are interested:
Anyways, it goes into how boys really need to keep moving and how competitions aren’t such a bad idea either. While teaching summer school I had 9 boys and 2 girls so I have been working hard to keep them interested and this ideas came to mind and the kids loved it. I hope your kids enjoy it too!
The directions are on the next page!
I created clues to that were relevant to my school but I left it in a powerpoint format so you can edit as needed:
I set it up so the students get a clue from me each time they solve a division problem, that way I can check their work.
For example, I will give them the clue that leads them to the cafeteria and they will find a division problem there.
Then they have to solve their problem with their partners or groups. Once they solve it, they come back to me, I check their work, and then give them the next clue.
The next clue will then lead them to the next room with the next problem and the pattern continues until the final clue leads them back to me where they have to solve their final challenge problem and/or work on some other division activity until all groups finish.
