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 multiplication with your fourth grade students.

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 multiplication with your fourth grade students. Students will be multiplying a whole number of up to four digits by a one digit whole number, and two-digit whole numbers by two-digit whole numbers.

This is an interactive game where the students are timed. They are trying to save turkeys from becoming Thanksgiving dinner. 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.
