This document contains the link to a digital breakout game involving area and perimeter created via Google Forms. The students are tasked with solving a series of riddles and problems involving area and perimeter by collaborating and using critical thinking skills -- all while using technology! This activity truly engaged my students and got them excited about learning! Below is the scenario that your students will be presented with.
"Hello, my astronauts-in-training! I hope you have enjoyed your time on the International Space Station so far. I certainly have enjoyed watching you discover the wonders of space during our short visit. However, I need your attention quickly, as I have some very serious news to share with you about our temporary home here on the International Space Station. It seems that our extraterrestrial neighbors want us gone sooner rather than later -- they have depleted the oxygen levels here on the International Space Station. To make matters worse, they have locked the key to the space shuttle inside this box. It seems that there is a five-digit code that we will need to unlock this box. It also seems that these extraterrestrial neighbors of ours appear to have a twisted sense of humor. They have made our survival dependent on a game -- they are testing our intelligence by requiring you to solve area and perimeter problems to unlock clues to figure out the lock's code. Now, we only have 20 minutes worth of oxygen remaining. So, please, work quickly to unlock this box, so we can make it back to Earth safely!"
