ESCAPE THE EIGHTIES:
Students will be sent on an 80’s adventure as they try to make their way back to the 21st Century. This product is a fun and engaging 80’s themed math game that is based on the Escape Room attractions that can be found across the world. Similar to the Escape Room attractions, students will be “locked in” during this game, and the object is to find the codes to “escape” within a given time period.
When an old box in the basement is discovered, students will be sent traveling through time and space to a different decade. In order to escape, teams will need to use good communication, logic, attention to detail, cooperation and their math skills.
This particular Escape Room focuses on 5th Grade Common Core Standards.

SKILLS REVIEWED DURING THE GAME:
✤ Plotting coordinates on a coordinate plane
✤ Solving equations using the order of operations
✤ Multiplying and dividing decimals
✤ Adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators
✤ Story Problems
If you work with a small group on math skills during intervention time, this game would be a fun game to play together, and would allow you to review needed skills in a fun and motivating way.
The activity requires the use of technology because students will need to be able to access Google Forms and their Google Drives. The use of the Google Form reduces the amount of preparation and printing for the teacher. It also will only progress to the next task if the correct code is entered which means no grading is required.
Students will be divided into teams where the object is for their team to escape before time is up. I recommend 60-90 minutes, but you can vary the time based on the needs of your class.
