A multi-day lesson plan! Full instructions included.
Super fun for learning Excel basics of maneuvering through a spreadsheet, entering content in cells, and changing cell formatting.
Here is how the activity goes:
- Students and teacher alternate between creating a “treasure map” (students) and telling the story of Calico Jack (teacher).
- Students then get to see the treasure chest they found at the X (embedded in a mystery location on the Excel spreadsheet).
- Students will add formatting and clip art to their map.
- Students add color and borders.
Students get to see what special item is in their chest (a second embedded image in a mystery location on the Excel spreadsheet).
Two templates are included for two different treasure outcomes!
