This escape room activity was created for my fourth grade class and their first grade reading buddies to complete together. Each task contains a Little Task card (first grader) and a Big Task card (fourth grader.) There were 2-3 pairs in each of my groups. The Little task Cards give the combination to the lock, and the Big Task cards give the clue to which box needs to be unlocked. The Little Task cards contain adding and subtracting word problems up to 20, and the Big Task Cards contain multi step word problems.
I have included everything you need to conduct this activity including step by step directions, handouts, etc.
This is a fantastic way to promote cooperative learning and a great school culture. It is so amazing to see older students working with younger students. Both sides benefit so much!
