Product Description
STEM Quests are missions that involve solving riddles and tasks to find clues to open a locked box. Students work together to find the key words that lead to the needed information to unlock a lock. For this Quest, the information within the tasks is all about United States Landforms. It’s an Unlock the Box Challenge with a Science-based theme!

Box 1 will be solved by students identifying a set of landforms and organizing their names in ABC order. This will reveal a clue that takes them to a map display of landforms. By finding the clue on the map students can discover the lock code for the first box! After unlocking the box, they are led to Box 2. This one involves solving math problems to cover the next clue- which also leads back to the map display and the box code. Box 3 involves reading and placing events in chronological order based on visits to certain landforms. Solving this task takes them to the map display again and the they can find the final lock code.

You will need three number locks for this quest. Directions are included to use this set without these locks! You will also need three boxes. This can be a plastic or metal tool box, but any box will work- even a cardboard box! Directions and photos are included for how to set up the boxes and locks or how to use a version without locks.

Included in this resource you will find a table of contents, and 3 pages of tips and tricks for setting up everything, and the map display cards. For Box 1- teacher directions with photos, student directions, landform word meaning strips, landform picture cards, and box labels. For Box 2- teacher directions with photos, math pages in two versions with answer keys, and box labels. For Box 3 – teacher directions with photos, student directions cards, set of four postcards, and box labels. Miscellaneous forms include Hint cards for each task, an alternative locking system (made of paper), Certificates to award students completing the task, a bonus task using a doodle map, and all pages are provided in a black and white version. Check the preview to see everything!

This Quest was tested with fourth and fifth graders. It would be great for 4th-6th grade. Some items are provided in two ability levels. Three pages of hints and tips will guide you through using this resource. It’s a highly engaging activity that will create a busy-ness in your classroom that is so much fun. Comments from my students include:
• “I loved the teamwork we had to use.”
• “This was challenging and fun at the same time.”
• “This was like an adventure.”
