A whole class game that consolidates your students’ knowledge of measurement concepts – in a fun way!

Marvin Measurement has secured some precious treasure in a locked box, protected by a four-digit code. He created four measurement puzzles and a riddle for you to solve. By correctly completing the puzzles, you will have the four digits needed to open the locked box and gain access to the treasure within!

Your task is to solve the four measurement puzzles to find the digits needed to unlock the treasure box. Use the final riddle to put the four digits in the correct order. The first group to work out the combination to the lock can open the treasure box and keep the contents!

The activities include angles dominoes, a 24-hour time polygon puzzle, a unit of measurement maze and a shape word search.
