Product Description
Mission Math is meant to be completed “Escape Room” style. Students are given 5 missions to complete during the day. All missions meet 5th grade grade math standards and are meant to be completed in teams. In my classroom, we broke the students into 5 groups. Students are told that they need to complete all 5 missions in order to help save the main character's HUGE fortune from being stolen from the evil villain.

This version meets 5th grade standards, but if you would prefer a BUNDLE which includes differentiated versions, check out my store.

Mission #1- Perimeter, area, and measurement
Mission #2- Word Problems (Multiple standards)
Mission #3- Bar Graphing and Line Plots
Mission #4- Multi-Step Word problems
Mission #5- Fractions (adding, equivalent, and decimals)

Also included are:
*Initial letters to students
*All missions
*Folder covers
*Background information reading passage
*Spy Bucks
*Intro videos, set the mood video, and concluding video

Needed Materials:
*Rulers
*Masking tape
*Paper
*iPads or computers would be best, but you can get away with not having these.
*Crayons or colored pencils
*Scissors

Key Points:
*Breaking your kids into groups of 4-6 and keeping these groups for the entire day will work the best. I would suggest moving students into groups or working at a table for the day.
*This is meant to be an full day mission, but you could definitely break it up over a 5 day period.
*I suggest giving items to students in either manila folders or in small bins. This just helps keep everything organized. (See my pictures at the end of this packet to see the scrapbook bins I bought at my local craft store).
*Each time a team finishes a mission, they receive a letter. The letters are at the end of this packet.
*I included three videos in this set, You can use the first video to introduce this mission to students. The second video can be projected and played throughout the day to set the scene. The third video can be used after students complete the missions. You don’t need to use these, as I also included the written letters with this information. It may just engage your students a bit more if you can play the videos.
*As the day progresses, I give out SPY BUCKS. I start everyone off with 8 spy bucks. I give out more SPY BUCKS throughout the day as the kids answer questions correctly, do a great job problem solving, or working as a team. I can also take away spy bucks if students are off task, etc. However, I try to keep it positive.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
