Will your class escape in time? Your students have been captured by a band of swashbuckling pirates. Students must help the ringmaster breakout of this risky situation by solving a string of clues hidden around the classroom. This is a review game for the math concepts taught in 2nd. This game has questions reviewing concepts taught in all domains throughout the year.


Will your class escape in time? Your students have been captured by a band of swashbuckling pirates. Students must help the ringmaster breakout of this risky situation by solving a string of clues hidden around the classroom. This is a review game for the math concepts taught in 2nd. This game has questions reviewing concepts taught in all domains throughout the year.

**Versions with and without QR codes included

This is an interactive game where the students are timed. Students try and solve clues and math problems to breakout and escape the classroom. 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). To unlock their envelopes, students will need to solve math problems. A paper is provided so students can show their work for each problem. 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 problem.

*Everything is included, however teachers must provide their own envelopes.

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, and become an instant hit!

    My class and I had so much fun with this! I did it whole class but I think it would be easier with teams or a smaller group. I hid a box of ring pops as the treasure.

    This is a great activity! Once the prep is complete (seems overwhelming at first but instructions are given step by step) set up is a breeze. I suggest using card stock and laminating resource for quick use over and over again! Thank you for an awesome resource!

    So much fun. Pretty easy to prep. I did this at the end of the school year with my students. This past year I had a very high group of students and they ran through it quickly. Nonetheless, they still enjoyed it and were begging for more. I will definitely be purchasing more from this seller!

  37. Classy Cottage

    My kids loved this!!!

  38. Alexandria Vincent

    Loved this!! We did it as whole class. I think it would be too difficult for the students to do it alone. They would need a lot of prompting and modeling, but the students loved it as a whole group activity!

    LOVE your creativity and thoroughness! I will definitely be purchasing more from you this year.

  40. Samantha S.

    We did this the last week of school. My students LOVED it. It was probably the most engaged and excited to practice math that they were the whole year. It took a lot of prep and putting things together, but it was 10000% worth it. I am going to be buying more of these, for sure!
