This resource includes all you need to have your own unique review for the end of the year, that your students will never forget! Who doesn't like a treasure hunt! This resource is aimed at the younger learners, but can be edited to fit any grade level or content area. There is an editable PowerPoint file included, along with a PDF format, you can use to tailor to your needs.
Here's how the Ultimate Treasure Hunt works...
Students are excited to receive a mystery letter from Captain Redbeard, a pirate who has lost their treasure. He asks your students for their help in finding it, but they must overcome the "obstacles" on the treasure map to be successful. The obstacles are printables with math review items for your students to complete. Students then get their treasure map and complete each of the eight obstacles. When they complete all of them, they will find Redbeard's treasure (chocolate gold coins, for example)!
Included in this treasure hunt are:
~Set Up Directions and Ideas
~A Letter from Captain Redbeard
~Covers for the obstacles
~Obstacles for your students to complete (they are geared towards First Grade Common Core Standards)
~Student Treasure Map
~Treasure Toppers and Gift Cards
~A Decorative Banner to hang
~An Editable File of all materials
Students will absolutely love this activity and it can be done in a day or spread out over a week. Students can be grouped, or it can be an individual activity; there are many options to fit the unique needs of your class. This would also be a great resource to use as practice before standardized testing.
