This Halloween Escape Room math activity is a fun and engaging game for your students to apply and practice 2nd Grade addition and subtraction skills, as well as a fantastic opportunity to develop logical thinking and team work skills. Students will solve a series of five addition and subtraction challenges in order to collect keys and escape the haunted house! For each team, you will need to supply seven 6"x9" envelopes to place the clues into. If you are using the Google Forms digital version, you and your students will need access to your own Google accounts.

Print, cut out and place the student letter, clue cards, clue code breaker cards and key cards into envelopes and attach the cover image to each envelope. Print the haunted house location cards and display around the classroom, placing the corresponding envelope near the locations.

This Halloween math escape room can be played as a printed paper version (with the option for a scavenger-hunt style game) or it can also be played as a digital activity using Google Forms.

Also included is additional escape room sets for an additional 4 teams, so 5 teams can play the game at the same time, all starting off on different clues. The additional cards are color coded for each team.
