Trouble motivating the troops?
Try a Pirate Treasure Hunt to create some excitement! Yoho ho, thrill of the chase, and all that.
Power Puzzle uses PigPen coding to create worksheets that contain secret messages, written in pirate-rhyme, which are actually instructions on where to find treasure - in your own home!
Parents can decide what the reward will be: candy or a sweet, a toy or a note, or maybe even a reward voucher for a special treat (maybe choosing a movie or staying up a half hour past bedtime.) The completed worksheet will reveal the location of the loot - just be sure to hide the prize for your scavengers to find!
There are different 4-set puzzles with a variety of spots. Set #2 locations are:
near the Bread Drawer (or where you keep the bread)
in the student's Schoolbag
by the eggs in the Refrigerator
in a Desk Drawer
Be sure to choose a set that has these locations in your home so you can hide the treasure! If a location is not a convenient hiding spot, just hide a small note there directing the pirate-search elsewhere.
All worksheet sets come with instructions and answer keys.
