This product is a fun and engaging math game based on the Escape Room attractions that can be found across the world. Similar to the Escape Room attractions, students will be “locked in” during this game, and the object is to find the codes to “escape” within a given time period.
In order to be successful, teams will need to use good communication, logic, attention to detail, cooperation and their math skills.
This particular Escape Room focuses on standards that are taught in fifth grade.
The following skills are reviewed during the game:
Multiplication with decimals to the tenths place
Division with decimals to the hundredths place
Calculating Total Area
If you work with a small group on math skills during intervention time, this game would be a fun game to play together, and would allow you to review needed skills in a fun and motivating way.
This Escape Room 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.
Students will be divided into teams where the object is for their team to break out of the “haunted house” before time is up. I recommend 45-60 minutes, but you can vary the time based on the needs of your class.
