Loved this, my 3rd grader LOVED this even more! She was challenged just enough to really spark that drive to figure it out and was so super proud of herself when she did. It took the perfect amount of time as well.
Turkey Trouble: A Thanksgiving Math Escape Adventure
My kids loved doing this on Thanksgiving week.
We really enjoyed this today (Thanksgiving). Thank you for making it! Because we didn't have a group - just our own two kids - to add to the excitement, I printed off the Thanksgiving scavenger hunt cards from the Dating Divas (free) and used them to direct the kids to different locations in the house to find an envelope containing one of the Math Escape challenges. They worked as a team to solve the challenges. The challenges were just the right level and were varied enough to keep everyone's interest. When each challenge was completed, the kids I gave them the next scavenger hunt clue to find the next challenge. For us the lock code at the end gave the clue to find a stuffed turkey toy that gobbled. We all had so much fun , even Dad! We are all hoping you will make a Christmas one too!
I picked this up for our homeschool friends giving party after we enjoyed the Halloween one so much!
I broke the kids into teams of two (ranging from age 9-11) and gave them 40 mins. They needed a little guidance here and there but it was the perfect level of confidence and challenge. Thanks for another great activity!
