This isn’t your typical escape room activity. Instead of being “locked” inside with the goal of escaping, a sweet treat is “locked away,” and the only way to get the sweet treat is to crack the four escape codes. Your students will be motivated by this fun and engaging Valentine’s Day math activity.
The best part is that you literally do not need to print a thing! Just have a sweet treat ready for those who are successful!
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 seventh grade.
The following skills are reviewed during the game:
Ratios and proportions
Mathematical vocabulary practice
Basic research skills
Using algebraic thinking to solve problems
Basic fractions (I find my students can always use practice with fractions.)
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 Google Forms and their Google Drives. 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 have unlocked a sweet treat. The sweet treat that they receive for being successful can be whatever you want. I recommend 60-90 minutes, but you can vary the time based on the needs of your class.
