Product Description

This escape room covers several concepts in 8th grade math. Escape Rooms are a great way to engage students! This escape room was created with flexibility, complete with instructions on how to prepare and implement. There are codes ready-to-program into your number locks and word locks OR you can use Google Forms for students to "unlock" the puzzle. Google forms are created and ready to use. There are 3 stages to this escape room.

The Escape Room is a Christmas theme. Students must work together to save Christmas from the GRINCH! There are multiple choice and short answer questions. Questions cover the first half of the 8th grade curriculum, including transformations, scientific notations, Pythagorean Theorem, volume, estimating square roots, solving equations, identifying functions, identifying slope and y-intercepts, and special angle relationships. This escape room is a great review before Christmas to keep students engaged in class.

For Stage 1, cut the questions into pieces so that students can work on multiple questions at one time within their groups. Students will answer questions. The answers tell students "Under the Desk", inviting students to look under their desks for the next clue!

For Stage 2, the questions should be waiting taped under the students' desks in an envelope. The students should NOT use the links. There should be 6 boxes around the room, 5 labeled "Box 1", "Box 2", etc, and one un-labeled with a word lock. The first answer of stage 2 tells them which box to unlock and the four digits tell the students the four-digit code to unlock the boxes. The Stage 3 clues sheets should be locked inside one Box only.

For Stage 3, students use the cipher to spell a word. They go find the only box with a word code to finish the puzzle.

Instructions WITH GOOGLE FORMS (AND NO LOCKS):

For Stage 2, the questions should be waiting taped under the students desk in an envelope.. There should be 5 boxes around the room, labeled "Box 1", "Box 2", etc. The first answer tells them which box to open. Inside each box, place the print-out of the link for that box. The students will use the code on GOOGLE FORMS and get a phrase. They tell the phrase to the teacher and, if the phrase is correct, the teacher gives them the stage 3 clue sheets.

For Stage 3, students use the cipher to spell a word. They use the link on the clue sheet to determine if their code is correct or not.
