You do NOT need a lock! You do NOT need envelopes! You do NOT have to cut out puzzle pieces! This product is meant to make your life easy!
Please look at the preview to determine if this resource/reading level works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult clues (hint cards and how to). Students have to answer questions about each passage to ensure understanding.
Students may work individually, with a partner or in small groups to solve four puzzles in order to determine the final code. I prefer partner work for best results!
An answer key and easy to follow teacher directions are provided.
Time needed: 45-60 minutes (it really all depends on your students reading skills)
You can decide how much time your students have to complete the activity. Maybe some students don’t finish, but that’s OK! They still learned something new! I often stop once the first three students solve all the clues. Time management strategies are included.
Basic subtraction skills are needed, a calculator may be used if needed. Example: 1629-1624=5
