Will your class escape in time? Try this escape room style game with your students today! This is a fun game that is perfect for reviewing division with your 4th grade students.
This is an interactive game where the students are timed. They are trying to escape Santa’s snowed in workshop. Students must solve a string of questions and clues, as well as decode different ciphers, to escape. If your class has never played an escape game before, I suggest playing this as a whole class. However, materials are provided for up to 6 different groups to play at one time.
**Versions with and without QR codes included!
Students try and solve clues and questions 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). 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.
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 was great! It did take me 4 hours to prep. because I ran out of printer ink and had to hand-write several copies for all my groups. My hope is that I will at least have the printing/cutting/laminating ready next year, so the prep. should be quicker!

Kari F. –
My students and I absolutely love your Cracking the Classroom Code resources! I was thrilled to see you offering a division resource. My students usually complain about how much they dislike division, but I knew as soon as they saw the division edition of Cracking the Classroom Code, they’d be singing a different tune. Not only did they love completing each task, they also got some much-needed practice on this often times difficult-to-master concept. Thank you so much for all your resources in this series! I’ll definitely be purchasing more in the future!
Messy Bun Teacher –

I am excited to see what you have in store for us with this escape! My students loved the Zombie escape! I just set up the Thanksgiving one, and I know they will love it when we do it this week! Your explanation of how to set it up is very clear. I must admit I was intimidated at first but it is very easy once you get going! Thanks for a great way to excite students to learn!
