Product Description

Please help us!!! We have lost all of our food for the Thanksgiving feast. Please help us find all our food and our turkey. You will have to solve math problems and find clues to find all the food. You will need to find 5 items of food with letters. Use these 5 letters to unscramble a word to find the final clue and the turkey. Please save Thanksgiving.

This is an escape room like activity in which students complete math tasks and use problem solving skills. Students are very EXCITED and ENGAGED when working through this activity. Students will have to solve problems and follow the directions in a scavenger like hunt working on math concepts along the way. The teacher may need to help guide students on the correct path. This activity can be done as a whole group or in a small group. The teacher can provide lots of teacher direction or students can work in cooperative groups with minimal assistance. This activity may take around 30-45 minutes for students to complete.

This activity can be completed by the students in 2 different ways. One way to complete the activity is by using the Smartboard Smart Notebook program. The other way to complete this activity is with a paper copy. Directions are provided for both ways.

Setting up the materials may take around 5-10 minutes. You will need six 10’’ x 13’’ envelopes to put materials in for paper copy or you will need six 6” x 9” envelopes if you use the Smartboard directions.
