A while back I did this activity: http://new-to-teaching.blogspot.com/2015/12/finding-president-obama.html
Students had to find President Obama and his missing hot air balloon. Students had to write and graph inequalities. I did this for Algebra last year and thought it would be a great activity for Algebra 2 at the beginning of the year.
I use to cut out three 3 clues, but this year I changed it up a bit. I still gave students the direction sheet. I did change the other 3 clues to make them look more official.
I blacked out some of the information on the original document and added some of the text of the original clue to the bottom. Plus the top secret on the top looks very cool.
Next was an official letter.
Last was suppose to be a order fill out form from the FBI, I altered the text in the middle to make it a phone transcript.
