About the product:
This is a fun way to review all the teks in reporting category #2. There are 19 questions total. 2 questions on each readiness standard and 1 question on each supporting standard. The idea is that students start with a riddle. Then they are given the questions for lock 1. Each answer choice on each question has a symbol of some sort by it. The students will record their answers and its symbol on the recording sheet. They will then look at the decoder for that lock Each decoder requires a math skill to find the proper lock combination. Once they have solved the decoder and have their combination for their lock they try and unlock the lock. Once they have unlocked lock 1 they are then given the envelope with lock 2 questions and decoder. The process continues till they have solved all 6 locks.
This can be used for as many groups as you want. I have my four tables doing this all at once. If you have purchased the other escape rooms for third grade then you can have tables or groups doing different ones. This product has 6 locks so I have bought 6 locks for each of my tables. If you do not want to buy locks then you can use iPads and change 6 iPad unlock codes to the codes for the locks. You can also just have the students show you the lock codes and have give them the next lock when they are correct.
If you are choosing to put six locks then you can get a hasp lock so that it requires 6 locks to open something. Listed below is how I set up my escape room.
I have a tool box I bought from the dollar store. I then purchased a hasp Lock and put it on the tool box. Next I put 6 locks on the hasp lock. You can Choose any type of lock. I just bought Ones with 3 digit locks. If you bought Some different ones I have included a Sheet where you can say that each Digit equals a different symbol or direction. If you bought locks that require more numbers to open them, then just give the students the digits they need. Example: if you bought a lock that requires 4 numbers, my cards give your students 3 number so you just write the 4th number on their recording sheet before you make your copies.
I like to start with a riddle and then have a snack that goes along with the riddle inside of my tool boxes. This escape rooms riddle is about sweats so I ask parents to donate candy and I put some inside.
