Tiles, Blocks, Sapphires & Gold: Designing a Treasure Map

Young cartographers in groups hide treasure at school and then create a map to find it using pattern blocks and tiles. They make paintings with clues to create a visual representation of the location of their treasure. Groups present their paintings, and the class hunts for hidden treasure. Self-assessment of the strengths of the clues in their paintings develops critical thinking.
