Looking for this with multiplication & division (grades 3-5)? STEM Escape Room - Solar system - Grades 3-5
This NO-PREP STEM escape room science activity is the perfect, fun STEM activity for reviewing basic solar system facts, while practicing math skills! The STEM activity content is suitable for use in 2nd grade, and even early 3rd graders will enjoy it as well. It can be completed individually or in groups, so it can also be used as a team-building science activity. Students love working to solve the engaging STEM activities and complete the escape room.
In a fun and simple story line, students work through the STEM activities to find the missing launch codes and ensure mission success!

Google Classroom is not required, only an internet browser.
