All activities are about prime factorization and reinforce TEKS 6.7A:

Clue # 1- Prime Factorization and then color a hundreds grid to reveal an apple, the apple leads the students to go to the cafeteria for their next clue.

Clue # 3- QR Code- Leads to a Google Form quiz about Prime Factorization- The last question leads them to the office clerk for the next clue. The google form is made so that in the event of a wrong answer a tutorial video will appear to help students remember the process.

Clue # 4- Puzzle Pieces- Students match up a number to the correct prime factorization. These puzzle pieces have letters which when unscrambled create the word LEADER so students will infer that they must go to the head of the school for their next clue.

Clue # 5- Research a publishing date on a popular book then find the prime factorization of that year. Then the students are instructed to go to the librarian for the final piece of challenge, which is a congratulations letter for saving Penny!

The download comes with everything you need to complete this in your own classroom! The students loved this in my own class and they will love it in yours!
