Product Description
Dinosaur Detectives is an "escape room" style game designed for students in grades 1-4

It is compatible with BreakoutEDU kits, or you can obtain the required materials (locks and boxes, which can then be reused with other Breakout / Escape games) using the included links to purchase online (or from a retailer of your choice.)

The content covers several CCSS standards in ELA and Math, and is specifically paced/aligned with first grade McGraw-Hill Reading Wonders and MyMath curricula, but will integrate with other curriculum, as well, if students have learned the following skills (suitable for end of 1st grade and also modifiable to create more challenging math problems for higher grade levels):

ELA:

* Decode all basic phonics, including consonant and vowel digraphs
* Capitalization rules
* Punctuation rules (such as period at the end of abbreviations)
* Synonyms
* Suffixes (specifically "-ful")

Math:
* Fraction names / concepts (1/2 and 1/4)
* 3D geometry -- counting faces of 3D figures
* Addition (less than 100)
* Subtraction (less than 100)
* The above skills can be modified to match the arithmetic skills you want to practice!
