Educational School Trips
Admission: 3 dollars per child
(Thank you, teachers, for all you do for the children in our community)
We want to help you bring lessons from the classroom to life.
Our maze and corresponding resources will cover the following Common Core State Standards:
1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly.
The Sharpsville Mystery Maze is similar to the game of Clue -- but with a twist! Before arriving at the Corn Maze on your scheduled day, you will need to have your class read the story we send to you. Worksheets that we will also provide will help your students identify which character committed the crime based on clues in the story. The story will not reveal where the crime happened or what weapon the character used.
Once you arrive at the Corn Maze, we will finish the story for you. The students will become active participants in the mystery and enter the corn maze in groups (there must be an adult chaperon for each group). While wandering around the maze, students will have to keep their eyes out for scrambled letters and hidden weapons (just a picture of them). Using the found clues, they should be able to emerge from the maze with the answers to what weapon the character used and where the crime happened.
As the groups exit the maze with the answers, there will be activities for them to participate in while waiting for the other groups to finish. These activities include eating popcorn, playing a game of corn hole toss and ladder golf, and writing an ending to the mystery story.
Once all the groups emerge, we will award free ice cream certificates to the students who solved the mystery correctly and then you can pack up to return to your school (awards provided by A&W in Kokomo).
Plan on the entire trip lasting approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Upon returning to the classroom, we will provide you with follow up activities to do with your students to help wrap up the experience.
This trip and the resources we provide are geared towards 4th - 8th grade students.
