Bakery Battle will have your students reviewing fractions as they solve a variety of fraction problems in order escape a bakery. In order to be successful, teams will need to use good communication, logic, attention to detail, cooperation and their fraction skills.
ESCAPE ROOM THEME:
Students will be entered into an imaginary Bakery Battle. The judges have locked them in, and their only chance at winning is to unlock all the ingredients and the bakery door by using everything they have learned about fractions to discover and create the escape codes.
This particular Escape Room focuses on standards that are taught in fifth and sixth grade.
SKILLS REVIEWED DURING THE GAME:
֍ Adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators
֍ Multiplying and dividing fractions.
֍ Simplifying fractions to simplest form
֍ Changing improper fractions into mixed numbers.
The activity requires the use of technology because students will need to be able to access Google Forms and their Google Drives. The use of the Google Form reduces the amount of preparation and printing for the teacher. It also will only progress to the next task if the correct code is entered which means no grading is required.
Students will be divided into teams where the object is for their team to escape before time is up. I recommend 60-90 minutes, but you can vary the time based on the needs of your class.
