This escape room activity is an exciting and engaging way to review fraction concepts with students.
While checking out an old abandoned house you and your friends get trapped inside! Upon inspection of the house, you notice various fraction related materials laying around the room and an old dusty computer waiting for a code that will help you escape. Can you and your friends use your fraction skills to decode the puzzles and discover the secret code that is vital to your escape?
This bundle contains five work stations with various puzzles students must decode and work through to escape the room. Students should have a good understanding of all topics listed below in order to complete all these activities. This escape room is designed to last one full class period.
Topics covered in this lesson include:
• Adding and subtracting fractions
• Multiplying and dividing fractions
• Reducing fractions and equivalent fractions
• Comparing and ordering fractions
• Order of operations with fractions
There is some teacher prep work that involves printing and cutting materials; however the only additional materials needed to complete this activity is student access to a computer (only one computer needed for the entire class). The computer component is not vital to the activity; however it does add an extra bit of excitement for students when completing the escape room activities.
Note: Computer must be able to access Microsoft excel and be able to display macros (program not compatible with ipads or tablets)
