I had been away for a weekend and didn’t properly prepare for my elementary school class. Luckily, I’ve been in this biz for a while and when I saw we would be reading about a treasure hunt in Let’s Go 4, I put fifteen minutes to good use.
First, I decided there would be two teams and chose mascots.
Both teams went to the same places but in different orders. Although the clue above for the Rabbit team was for a map, below is the next clue for the Dinosaur team.
It was a short bit of fun for the students -there were only four clues and the room wasn’t very big. It could have been more exciting if more than two students had shown up. Here they are, suitably anonymized:
The clues each contained one large letter that could be combined to form a word. Trickily, the two words were almost identical: T-E-A-S and E-A-T-S. I am not sure if they are smiling from the game or the silly pose I required.
The Let’s Go text (#4) has a continuing story of a treasure hunt so I repeated the game. This time, I took a little more time into organizing it and the game was much expanded.
