Give your students an unforgettable experience to practice place value and addition/subtraction skills while having to escape their classroom! This GET OUT series provides students with challenging tasks where they need to solve puzzles, uncover codes, and open locks to GET OUT in one hour! Re-settable locks and chests are recommended for this activity, however there is an additional method for using this product without those materials.
This particular GET OUT pack transforms the classroom into a bat cave where students need to work in teams using math skills and teamwork to find the hidden air horn and GET OUT of the bat cave before the bats awake. This challenge works best as a review for skills including understanding place value and value up to the hundred thousands, comparing and rounding numbers, and addition and subtraction up to 6 digits.
This product includes step by step directions for teachers to easily set up the escape challenge, directions and HELP cards for students, clues to be printed (and laminated), answer keys for all challenges, and a teacher cheat sheet for monitoring students during the activity. There are also optional bat decorations to assist with the theme and an “I was able to GET OUT…” sticker template (to print on address labels) to place in the final chest for students who successfully GET OUT. Introduce your students to this challenging team activity to make learning and review exciting and fun!
