A whole class, holiday-themed game that includes a collection of 6 fun activities pupils must solve to reveal numbers that combine to open a lock combination.

Begin the holiday festivities with a bang in your classroom with the Holiday Code Cracker! Pupils need to use the knowledge and communication skills acquired this year to work together on six tasks to reveal six numbers to crack a lock combination. The groups are then presented with a final riddle to help them arrange their code correctly to help them succeed in their mission. These activities include pupils thinking about ideas that involve:

• numeracy
• geography
• comprehension
• vocabulary.

Put the Buzz! into your class by getting a six-digit lock or two, three-digit locks, and a lockable box to hide a reward or message for students to compete for.

Run this activity as a timed rotation system for six groups on six activities, or create it as a race to the finish. As previously seen with Teach Starters, Marvin Measurement’s Treasure Box,  Christmas Code Cracker, and the Let’s Cooperate Code Cracker resources, pupils love working together on a variety of small group tasks, where they need to communicate and cooperate together to help each other succeed.

This teaching resource has a PDF that includes teacher instructions, activity answers, activity templates, task cards and resources needed for this activity.

Activities include:

• Holiday Hooray Poem
• Holiday Tree Wheel
• Rudolph’s Present Predicament
• Trifle Tower
• Cryptic Chatterbox
• Holiday Treasure Hunt
• Party Light Chaos
• Final Riddle
