Product Description

Will your class solve this math mission in time? This fun and engaging game involves your students in a timed, interactive game where they become Secret Agents on a mission to find the Geobot - a very important robot. Students will solve a series of questions and clues in order to compete the tasks required to solve the mystery. Review important Kindergarten geometry math skills involving 2-D and 3-D shapes. Students will sort 2-D and 3-D shapes, describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to, compose simple shapes to make larger shapes. This interactive mission is great for a review at the end of a unit or to maintain skills throughout the year. It would even work at the beginning of 1st grade review of those Kindergarten skills.

I have tried several breakout session/escape room activities with my students in K-2. I have found that they are more successful with the teacher leading the activity and having activities that all students can participate in. I have purposefully designed this math mission to include materials for all students to have the items needed to complete the tasks (up to 32 students). Also included is an interactive power point that allows the clues and tasks to be projected and easy to read. The power point makes it easy for the teacher and the students to navigate through the activities. Notes for the teachers with detailed instructions are also included. A student recording sheet is included for students to solve problems and record their math thinking.

Similar to a scavenger hunt, students will have 4 opportunities to move around the room and look for the mission envelopes. These envelopes will contain the materials they need to complete the next task - 2-D and 3-D shapes, secret agents above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to a rectangular prism (a box), shapes to name and place in a pattern, and triangles used to compose larger shapes. Everything is included except for the 4 envelopes the teacher will need to provide.

There is some prep work required to set up the game. I have tried to keep that prep work down to a minimum. There is also a detailed list of instructions with pictures and a checklist to make it as easy to follow as possible. You will not need to buy those expensive locks and containers. The envelopes you use will hold all the materials and they can be “locked” with the number or word from the problem the students have to solve to gain access to the location of the envelope. If they answers do not match, they need to rework the problem before they can open or unlock the envelope.

This Math Mission is also available in a 1st or 2nd Grade version.
