Help your students practice solving perimeter and area problems with this fun escape room. They will use teamwork and problem solving skills to find the perimeter and area of shapes.

Easy set-up:

Simply fill a box with a special treat - pencils, erasers, lollipops, etc. Then, use a 4-digit lock to lock the box. The last clue will give your students the code to unlock it. Another option is to use a lock with a key. Then, you can just give the students the key when they get the correct answer for the last clue.

Put the clues into envelopes and give them to the groups of students when they are ready for them.

Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.
Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
