Who doesn't love a little St. Patrick's Day fun? Your students will be motivated by this fun and engaging St. Patrick's Day math activity. They will take on the role of a leprechaun that has been trapped by a group of math students. The only way to escape is to decode three mathematically encrypted wishes.
In order to be successful, teams will need to use good communication, logic, attention to detail, cooperation and their math skills. This particular Escape Room focuses on standards that are taught in fifth grade.
The following skills are reviewed during the game:
If you work with a small group on math skills during intervention time, this game would be a fun game to play together. It allows you to review skills in a fun and motivating way. The activity requires the use of technology because students will need to be able to access the internet. The use of the Google Form reduces the amount of preparation and printing for the teacher. It also will only progress to the next task if the correct code is entered which means no grading for the teacher! Students will be divided into teams where the object is for their team to successfully crack all four codes before time is up. If they are successful, they will escape the leprechaun trap with a surprise golden treat. I recommend 60-90 minutes, but you can vary the time based on the needs of your class.
UNLIKE MANY OF MY OTHER ESCAPE ROOMS, YOUR STUDENTS DO NOT NEED TO HAVE GOOGLE ACCOUNTS IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THIS ESCAPE ROOM.
