Mission Math is meant to be completed “Escape Room” style. This is perfect for January or the New Year! Students are given 5 missions to complete during the day. All missions meet 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade grade math standards and are meant to be completed in teams. In my classroom, we broke the students into 5 groups. Students are told that they need to complete all 5 missions in order to help save the main character's HUGE fortune from being stolen from the evil villain.

Mission #1- Perimeter and measurement

Mission #2- Word Problems

Mission #3- Bar Graphing and Line Plots

Mission #4- Multi-Step Word problems and adding/subtracting money

Mission #5- Fractions

Also included are:

*Initial letters to students

*All missions

*Folder covers

*Background information reading passage

*Spy Bucks

*Intro videos, set the mood video, and concluding video

Needed Materials:


*Masking tape


*iPads or computers would be best, but you can get away with not having these.

*Crayons or colored pencils


Key Points:

*Breaking your kids into groups of 4-6 and keeping these groups for the entire day will work the best. I would suggest moving students into groups or working at a table for the day.

*This is meant to be an full day mission, but you could definitely break it up over a 5 day period.

*I suggest giving items to students in either manila folders or in small bins. This just helps keep everything organized. (See my pictures at the end of this packet to see the scrapbook bins I bought at my local craft store).

*Each time a team finishes a mission, they receive a letter. The letters are at the end of this packet.

*I did this right before our state math test toward the end of the year. Of course, you could also do this at the beginning of fourth grade to review third grade concepts.

*I included three videos in this set, You can use the first video to introduce this mission to students. The second video can be projected and played throughout the day to set the scene. The third video can be used after students complete the missions. You don’t need to use these, as I also included the written letters with this information. It may just engage your students a bit more if you can play the videos.

*As the day progresses, I give out SPY BUCKS. I start everyone off with 8 spy bucks. I give out more SPY BUCKS throughout the day as the kids answer questions correctly, do a great job problem solving, or working as a team. I can also take away spy bucks if students are off task, etc. However, I try to keep it positive.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Explain why a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 × 𝘢)/(𝘯 × 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.
