This product is part of the Measuring and Metrics Bundle!

This Metrics, Measuring, and Experimental Design Escape Room Game activity involves teamwork and attention to detail as your students imagine that they are astronauts on a mission gone awry with a faulty control board on their shuttle and the threat of never being able to get back to Earth! A group of friendly aliens offers their help in fixing the problem, but they want to make sure that their human friends can actually help in the mission. They put the astronauts to work by making them solve problems and crack their alien code. The problems have to do with the metric system, measurement tools and skills, science process skills, the scientific method, and basic experimental design. This is a fun review game!

The students will answer questions and follow directions/riddles to locate envelopes in the classroom with more clues. They will also be instructed along the way to input codes (in the form of letters and numbers) in to the “alien code cracker software”, which is a Google Form that they will access online. As they input the consecutive codes into the Google Form, they will be brought closer and closer to the final clue, which will unlock only with the special code. The aliens have agreed to help fix the broken control board if the astronauts can crack the code.

Topics covered are: metric base units (meters, liters, grams), converting between metric units (for example mL to L), accuracy and precision, measuring length, measuring mass, measuring volume of a regularly-shaped object, measuring volume of an irregularly-shaped object, basic science skills like making observations and hypothesizing, quantitative versus qualitative observations, independent and dependent variables (and X and Y axis on a graph), and the typical steps of the scientific method.

Teacher must provide envelopes (4 - 6" x 9" and 10 - 4.75" x 6.75" per student group of 4 - 6 students). All other materials are included, including detailed teacher directions for set-up and facilitation and an answer key to the student answer sheet.

Please note that you should not buy this with plans to use it tomorrow! You will need to allot around 45 minutes to set up this game for 5 groups. Once you get the hang of the way the game is set up for one group, the prep work goes quicker!
