Math Quests are an ideal teaching resource to give to students for extra math practice and review! Educators can use these math quest activities to enrich, engage and motivate students in the classroom or at home. The Terrible Turkey Takeoveris a useful resource for tutoring too! With easy, medium, and hard levels included, this math task can also be differentiated by swapping the chapters across the difficulty levels.

Optional Video Hook provided to introduce students to the activity. A written story is also provided in the download. Check it out below:

What is a Math Quest?

It begins with a story, as in the video hook. Then continues in 'chapters.' Each chapter reveals the next part of the story, posing a math task to complete. Once the math task is complete, students may progress to the next chapter. The final chapter will present some choices for actions to take in the story. Students make their choice and then complete the math in that section, carrying out instructions to receive a 'special number.' If they do the math correctly, the special number will match up to their ending of the story on the final page. Four alternate endings to receive! Learn more about Math Quests here.

Great to use for enrichment, early finishers, or a way to get lots of math practice in with a fun twist. Set as independent work or pairs to go on this story adventure.

Preparation & Set-Up

You will need to print, make copies for your students, and have the video ready for viewing to complete this activity. The video hook is for (optional) viewing before starting the paper part of this task. The math component of this activity is on paper, with each chapter presenting a part of the story to read and a math task/challenge or puzzle to 'progress' through the story. At the end of the story, students will be given choices, which leads to one of four alternative endings for them.
