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! The instructions including in each activity include enough information for students to solve them and do not require specific previous training, and you can keep the answer keys handy for any students that may need any assistance.

NO PREP!! The locks of the escape room are all automatically controlled by a pre-coded Google Form, so all you have to do is boot up a computer or tablet for each individual or group. Google Classroom is not required, only an internet browser. Hard copies of the puzzles are included if you'd like to print them out for your students, or you can just have them use scratch paper as needed for working out the solutions.
