    Welcome to an amazing interactive virtual field trip / team challenge that will send your students on exciting missions to explore landforms and famous destinations from all around the United States and the World!

    Such an educational adventure for Earth Day or anytime of year! I created it when we were learning about landforms and maps in social studies.

    This bundle includes 2 challenges for the USA, 1 for the World, and 3 special editions for the months of March, April, and May. If I add more special editions, they will be included here for FREE to everyone who grabs this bundle deal.

    For each of the 5-question challenges, students will:

    ➊ Find the destination on Google Earth using a tablet or computer.

    ➋ Use the map to solve the question and circle the correct answer from the 2 multiple choices given… each answer comes with a visual number (either on dice, fingers, ten frame, or tally marks) that will eventually help students “crack the code.”

    ➌ Once all 5 questions are answered, students will add up the total of all their answers (Tip: teach younger students to TOUCH the dots/ fingers/ tallies as they count so they don’t lose track) and if they have answered everything correctly, they will be able to tell the teacher the top secret code! Instruct kids to keep this TOP SECRET (don’t shout it out!) and come whisper it to you when they think they know it.

    I've designed these Crack the Code Google Earth activities to use in my Kindergarten classroom after we took a day or 2 to just have fun exploring and learning how to use Google Earth. I taught them things like how to zoom in and out, how to go to the street view to go inside buildings, and how to type or dictate where they want to travel to. Honestly, I didn’t know how to use Google Earth, but the 1 minute tutorial on their site taught me enough to get started and I’m sure you can figure it out easily, too! It’s an AMAZING resource! My class has 3:1 iPads so I talked them through the task ahead of time and then set my kids up in teams. I made sure each group had a higher “reader” in it to help them. I rotated around to assist and answer questions, too. My 1st and 4th graders at home LOVE these crack the code sheets as well so I know it’d be a blast for any elementary age student. This would also be fun to do together with “buddies” from another grade (I've done this, too and it is super fun for all ages!).

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
    Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
    Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
    Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted. The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in which they were counted.
    When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
