Description

Navajo Code Talker Crack the Code Activity | Crack the Navajo Code that won WW2!

This version is designed for the traditional classroom. You can find the version that is optimized for the digital, distance learning classroom here.

In this 100% fun and engaging code-cracking breakout activity, students are introduced to the secret Navajo Code developed by the Navajo Code Talkers in World War II that was used to transmit messages while evading enemy detention. Enjoy this historical cipher activity!

Students are placed in the shoes of code-crackers trying to solve the Navajo Code, used by the Navajo Code Talkers in World War II. Student investigative teams have one class period to solve four clues related to the Navajo Code and World War II, then complete the final formula to crack the code. Do you have what it takes to crack the code?

Students use the Navajo Code to translate four secret clues, conduct research or use background knowledge, and use the clue answers to solve the final code that will save our nation's monuments! A modified final code is included to make it a touch easier for lower classes. A 60-minute timer is also included to display as student teams try to break the code!

Guaranteed to excite and engage your classroom. Great for an end of the year, team-building, or skill-building assignment!

Don't have a box or a lock? No worries -- simple workaround ideas are included that keep students focused!
