This is a fully online breakout game that incorporates math, number sense, and challenging puzzles that students will love! The mission is to successfully fill out a Holiday Helper Application to become an elf at the North Pole. This breakout can be performed individually, in pairs, or in small groups. Ideally, this breakout is for 4th and 5th graders, but it is appropriate for challenging 3rd graders or even fun for 6th graders.
The suggested time block for this breakout is 60-120 minutes, depending on student needs and groupings. It is suggested to give one computer/device per group with the link posted clearly. Students will also need scratch paper to do calculations. No other tools are needed. You could provide prizes for the first to finish or simply give bragging rights.
Math includes equivalent fractions, ratios, multi-digit addition, multiplication, measurement conversion, and data manipulation.
