Sheriff Chompalot has arrested you for littering in the ocean! To gain your freedom from the ‘Ocean Jail’, you must decipher some texts about ocean creatures. These texts are written in ‘shark tooth’ code (commonly known as ‘pig pen’ code). Will you be able to gain your key to freedom or will you remain in prison forever?
Interesting, fun facts about 15 ocean creatures are written in code and displayed on grey ‘notebook’ paper. A plain copy of the codes is also included (ie, no background).
US and UK spelling included.
This resource includes:
* scenario cards
* teacher notes
* list of the 15 ocean creatures
* code breaking tool (alphabet grid)
* 15 code breaking task sheets
* templates to write your own coded texts
The 15 ocean creatures:
Crab, dolphin, fish, hermit crab, jellyfish, lobster, manatee, octopus, seahorse, sea lion, shark, starfish, stingray, turtle, whale.
A super-fun activity for learning about ocean creatures which incorporates writing, reading, critical thinking and problem solving. Get your code-breaking cap on!
