A whole class, holiday-themed game where students work together to find a secret code.
Our Holiday Code Cracker game is perfect for the holiday season! Students work together on six tasks to reveal a set of numbers. The groups are then presented a final riddle to help them arrange their code in the right order. Students will use math, reading, and logic skills to crack the code!
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 your students.
This activity works well in a timed rotation or as a race to the finish!
You can print the entire activity pack in letter-size, however, we recommend printing the stimulus posters on tabloid paper. We have added a separate download that includes only the posters in tabloid size.
