Find the Hidden Treasure


The idea for this game came from a PowerPoint version at http://people.uncw.edu/ertzbergerj/ppt_games.html. The University of North Carolina at Wilmington has a website full of game templates that teachers can download and use in their classrooms. The home page of the game site is http://people.uncw.edu/ertzbergerj/all.html.

Directions for play: In advance, prepare a list of questions for the game. To play the game, divide the class into two or more teams. Use a coin toss or the spinner on the next page to determine which team goes first. The other team gets to choose a game board to use (there are ten boards from which to choose). If a team answers a question correctly, the team members get to choose a starfish to uncover. If the treasure is under the starfish, the team wins. To make the game go faster, have the students choose more than one starfish to uncover if they get a correct answer.

If the students uncover the treasure before all of the questions are answered, pick a different game board to finish the game.

I loved it. This is a flexible game that needs little clicking and writing on the game. You simply prepare the questions and have them handy for the kids to play. Also, the graphics are attractive.
Thank you!
