Can your students solve the division puzzles to escape the pond? Try this 3rd grade math escape room with your third grade students today! This is a fun breakout activity that is perfect for reviewing simple division facts and division problems with your students.
This game pairs well with the book The Multiplying Menace Divides by Pam Calvert. It can be used as an extension activity after reading the book.
*This set does not include the picture book, no excerpts from the book, no photos of pages, no links to the book, and no typed text of the book. This is a math companion to go along with your own copy of the book.*
Tired of spending hours creating fun and interactive lessons for your students? Look no further! I have just the game for you. This escape room will:
Save you time, because I planned and organized it for you.
Help your students review key math standards in a fun and engaging way.
Provide your students with collaborative learning and team building opportunities.
Give you the opportunity to reach even your most reluctant learners. Students won’t even realize they are learning, because they will be too involved in the game.
This is an interactive game where the students are timed. They are trying to escape the pond after being turned into frogs. Students must solve a string of questions and clues, as well as decode different ciphers, to escape. Materials are provided for up to 6 different groups to play at one time.
**Versions with and without QR codes included!
You, the teacher, can decide how much time your students have to complete the task. I suggest 45 minutes, but it is up to your discretion. You can project a timer for your class, or put one somewhere for all the students to see, so they can keep track of how much time they have left to complete their task.
This is similar to a scavenger hunt where students will be moving around the room, looking for clues to unlock their envelopes (I have included riddles and suggestions on where to hide each clue). A paper is provided so students can write their work down. For many of the questions, students must have an answer that matches one on an envelope. If the answers do not match, they can’t open or “unlock” the envelope, and must rework the question.
*Everything is included, however teachers must provide their own envelopes and file folders.
I give step by step instructions on how to set up the game, including pictures! This is sure to capture the attention of your students. This is such a fun 3rd grade math escape room!
