23 pages


This pack includes many ideas to explore caves in a variety of subjects. Using headlights and crawling around we made caves a fun learning experience for all students involved. Students earn their spelunker license for completing all the challenges of the day - 4 grammar "road blocks", 1 reading challenge, 1 writing challenge, 1 science and 1 social studies.

The social studies challenged is geared for just Missouri but you can take the idea and adopt it to learn more or get practice reading maps and learning about Missouri too (it is not editable)

Science includes looking at cave ecosystems and putting together a food web or pyramid.

Writing prompts (3) are included and students can choose what they want to write about on their adventure.

Reading materials were found elsewhere but I do tell you what I used.

Make sure to play the cave tunes link to keep the dripping water and exploring all day - your students are sure to be engaged in ALL of these activities - it made for such a fun day!
