This is a challenging puzzle that incorporates several different skills. Students will work in groups to crack the code. While gathering needed numbers for the code, students will practice Greek & Latin roots, prepositional phrases, vocabulary, verbs, multiplication, and division by 1-digit and 2-digit numbers. Besides these skills, students will need to work cooperatively together and will practice following written directions.
This game is virtually prep-free. All you need to do to get this activity up and running is copy a clue packet for each group, and to have the encrypted PDF set up on your computer for when students are ready to guess the code. My students absolutely love these games and I'm sure yours will, too!
