Cracking the Classroom Code™ 3rd Grade Math Review Game Escape Room


Will your class escape in time? Oh no! Your class has been captured by a group of swashbuckling pirates! They must use their math skills to escape. Students will attempt to escape from their captors by solving a string of math clues hidden around the classroom.


Cracking the Classroom Code

Will your class escape in time? Oh no! Your class has been captured by a group of swashbuckling pirates! Students must use their math skills to escape. Students will attempt to escape from their captors by solving a string of math clues hidden around the classroom. This is a review game for the math concepts taught in 3rd grade. It can be played in small groups, or as a whole class. If your class has never played an escape game before, I suggest playing as a whole class for the first time.

3rd Grade Math Review Game Escape Room

This is an interactive game where 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.

There are step by step instructions on how to set up the game, including pictures! This is sure to capture the attention of your students.

  262. Buyer

    hard to put together but they had fun

  263. Hope F.

    My kids thought this was amazing!! They didn’t even realize they were reviewing their math skills. This was by far their favorite activity we did all year!

  264. Alyssa P.

    Thank you for such a fun, creative and engaging resource!

  265. Melina G.

    This is great! Thanks!

  266. Alyssa L.

    Used with my 4th graders at the beginning of the school year- Great mixed review and allowed me to see who may need more reteaching with concepts! Thanks for the engaging review!

  267. Laura G.

    This is a fantastic and fun resource! My kiddos loved doing this at the end of the year!

  275. Janice J.

    Love It

  276. Kelly S.

    A fun way to review!

  277. Learning Is A Piece of Cake

    A great way to review the year before.

  278. Learning with Miss Luby

    The product itself is great, but it is a little advanced. Our CSOs for our state do not require adding and comparing fractions until 4th, and do not require adding fractions with unlike denominators until 5th. It is a good product, but I cannot use it to review 3rd grade concepts with my 4th graders.

  279. Elizabeth R.

    My kids really enjoyed this but even at the end of the year in 3rd grade really needed a lot of support and doing it together once.

  280. Amy Hixenbaugh

    Such a fun resource!

  281. Elizabeth Simpkins

    Can’t wait to use this as a beginning of 4th grade math activity

  282. Tracee Romine

    Great Resource Thanks

  283. Stephanie Beduhn

    This will serve as a great review for my 4th graders at the beginning of the year!

  284. Kari H.

    What a fun activity! Incorporating learning and engagement at the same time. Thanks!

  285. Georgia S.

    Third graders had so much fun with this review, it was awesome!

  301. Heather Seegert

    This is going to be so fun to use!

  302. Buyer

    This was such a fun way for my students to review for state testing!! It encouraged them to work together and they LOVED every second of finding the clues!!

  303. Buyer

    My students loved this activity! It was very engaging and a great review!

  304. Valerie S.

    Was a great (and fun) activity to complete as a review before testing!

    This is incredible! I cannot wait to use it. Thank you!!!

  306. Samantha Owens

    Cannot wait to use this, the kids are going to love it!

  307. Laura Bizjak

    It was a fun review activity, although it was too difficult for my low 4th grade class. The instructions to set it up were great, but it took me 4+ hours to print, laminate, cut, and sort out the envelopes.

  308. Buyer

    Such a great resource, my 3rd graders loved it!

  309. Stephanie S.


  310. Heather L.

    This was wonderful! Thank you so much!!!!

  311. Time to Learn

    Fun and engaging way to review!

  312. Megan L.

    Although it takes some prep to put together ( I did not use the QR code version as I do not have access to enough phones/tablets to use them). It was SOOOO worth the time and effort! My kids absolutely loved it. It took them about 50-55 minutes to solve.

  313. Mackenzie M.

    This will be so fun as a beginning of the year review for my 4th graders!

  314. Sara F.

    It definitely took me a few days of trial and error to figure out how to best implement this with my class…but once we got the hang of it, boy did they love it! It was an excellent eye opener to see what needed to be reviewed, but they were so focused on cracking those clues!

  315. Ashley D.

    My students were so excited about this game. I really liked that I didn’t have to go out and purchase expensive locks and boxes for this game. Very easy to assemble and the students loved it.

  316. Karen E.

    Can’t wait to try this with my students this year!

  317. christi G.

    Kids loved it!

  318. Jacqueline S.

    awesome — this is great – thank you

  319. Lisa Lilienthal

    Fantastic! Thank you!

  320. Buyer

    The game took some time to put together and organize (which I knew in advance :). The class loved playing the game! It was challenging enough to keep them engaged, but not frustrated! Thanks!

  321. Brooke H.

    Fun way to review all standards taught 🙂

  322. Molly Connell

    Awesome activity!

  323. Candace B.

    Great product! The students love it!

  324. Tawnya A.

    Great way to review!

  325. Laura C.

    This was a fun activity to end the year.

  326. Shawndra M.

    Once my students got past the arguing/debating with their teammates on how to solve the problems, they absolutely LOVED it. We didn’t finish it in one day in the allotted time I gave them. The next day they came into the room asking if they could finish! I so enjoyed their little minds working and collaborating.

  327. Telina B.

    I love your product! Thank you!

  328. Melissa L.

    Love this

    I can’t wait to use this in my classroom! Thank you:)

  333. April Smith

    Loved it!

  334. Kara S.

    My students LOVED this activity. They were working together, excitedly searching for clues, and they were all so happy when they were finally successful at the end. No groups needed longer than 40 minutes to complete all the tasks.

  335. Crystal C.

    I am planning to use this as a back to school review!

  336. The Little Lamb’s Shop

    thank you

  337. Erin P.

    Looks like a fun review activity, though there is a lot of prep to create them! Hopefully, I can find time this summer to set it up for next year!

  338. Jordan Jacobson

    Kids loved this!

  339. Colleen F.

    Excited to try this next year!

  340. Buyer

    Love it!

  341. Emily M.

    Love this!!! My 3rd graders worked this on the last Friday of the year and loved it! I put on pirate music and even talked like a pirate during the exercise. I would stress to the kids that they need to show their work between each envelope. I have a feeling a few just looked off of their classmates.

  342. Brittany R.

    My kids absolutely loved this activity!

  343. Buyer

    Can’t wait to use it!

  344. Teresa S.

    I absolutely love this idea. I bought it for next year. I wish I had seen it sooner.

  345. Peggy R.

    This is fantastic! I loved how it made my students think. For the next school year I am going to purchase the other Cracking the Classroom Code activities and start doing them at the beginning of the year. Thank you! I am keeping my eye out for reading and grammar ones. I think they are so much fun!

  346. Danielle G.

    My students loved this!!

  347. Buyer

    Kids really enjoyed.

  348. Rachel Mader

    SUPER engaging way to do math at the end of the year. For third grade, definitely do one together first or they’re a bit lost!

  349. Kelly Bates — Building Brilliance

    This is a lot of fun and really engages kids. Thank you!

  350. karen S.

    Can’t wait to try this!

  351. Miss Razzle Dazzle

    My students absolutely LOVED this activity! Thank you so much! It was a great and fun way to review before my students took the math portion of MCAS (Massachusetts Standardized Testing) in May. I will definitely be using it again in the future!

  352. Lisa D.

    Love these, and can’t wait to use them next year!

  353. Roxy

    Thank you for making this wonderful resource. My students were fully engaged.

  358. Julia Daigneault

    My kids loved this activity!

  359. Samantha Burch

    Super fun! My students loved doing this activity on the last day of school!

  360. Kathy J.

    I can’t wait to set this up! Awesome!

  361. Erin Weaver

    It was a little difficult to understand, but after I put the first set together it was great. One of the time answers on the answer sheet was incorrect, but it didn’t effect the game. I think number 9 should be 6:31. If it is 5:55 and 36 minutes pass, it should be 6:31, not 6:18. Overall fun.

  362. Ashley Harris

    Neat idea. Took a little time to set up, but I figured it out. Can’t wait to use it. It will add some excitement to test review.

  363. Sherri V.

    Although this looks a little tricky to set up, I know it will be a huge hit when I use it!

  364. Lauren R.

    Great activity!! (Hopefully my kiddos will work better together the next time around!!)

  365. Patricia A C.

    The directions were a little hard to understand, but once I figured that out it was so easy to put together and a great resource for when review gets boring! thanks!

  366. Kristy C.

    This is so awesome! Great review at a time when my kids are done with school!

  367. Calandra Rubin

    Just finished setting this up to use tomorrow! I’m super excited to see how it plays out!

  368. Julie W.


  369. Third with Miss W

    Such an exciting way to review. I even dressed up as a pirate when we did this activity. My kids LOVED it. It got them to really work together!

  370. linda P.

    Once it’s set up, it’s lots of fun. Took awhile to get it organized for multiple groups.
