# Cracking the Classroom Code™ 3rd Grade Fractions Escape Room

\$5.00

Will your class escape in time? Uh oh! A mob of monsters has overtaken your classroom! To escape, you
must solve a string of clues and math problems hidden throughout the room. As you answer each question, you will get one step closer to breaking free from these crazy monsters. This is a review game for the concepts taught in 3rd grade, under the domain of Numbers and Operations-Fractions. If your class has never played an escape game or breakout game before, I suggest playing as a whole class for the first time.

## Description

Will your class escape in time? Uh oh! A mob of monsters has overtaken your classroom! To escape, you
must solve a string of clues and math problems hidden throughout the room. As you answer each question, you will get one step closer to breaking free from these crazy monsters. This is a review game for the concepts taught in 3rd grade, under the domain of Numbers and Operations-Fractions. If your class has never played an escape game or breakout game before, I suggest playing as a whole class for the first time.

**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 will 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.

Topics covered include:
Understanding fractions
Equivalent fractions
Fractions on a number line
Comparing fractions

We have not tried this yet but I love your step-by-step directions for setting it up. I needed baby-step directions since this is my first cracking-the-code activity (though I’ve purchased several of them from you this week!) but your directions were clear and easy to understand. I can’t wait to use these in my classroom to challenge my third graders, while reviewing key concepts!
