Darwin, his journey, evidence for evolution, cladograms--it's all in here. Use actual locks and boxes, OR use this fun lesson with a simple envelope system! Enough problems for 6 groups of students, or more if you use the problems in duplicate. I actually made different codes and problems for each group. With locks: utilizes 3, 3-digit locks, one MasterLock combination lock, four boxes, some paper, and a lot of fun!!
I got the locks and toolboxes at Dollar Tree, or I also bought inexpensive unfinished wooden boxes. Your students will love it and want more.
6 different codes to get your students started (hide in room somewhere)
6 different cladogram interpretation problem sets for box 2's combination.
6 different ciphers and comprehension/study questions for box 3's combination.
6 different map analysis problems for box 4's combination.
TWO DIFFERENT (1 min or 2 min) Speed Bump Cards (color-coded) for each group. (So fun to throw a team out for a minute or two--also color-coded)
Hint Tickets/Cards for all 3 boxes, color-coded so you can keep track of whom you have given hints to.
