Cracking the Classroom Code™ 5th 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 5th 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 5th 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:
Adding fractions
Subtracting fractions
Multiplying fractions
Dividing fractions by a whole number
Solving real world problems with fractions

    Awesome product! My students loved this activity (really any escape room) and this was no exception, the different format of questions definitely challenged them. This does require a bit of PREP work on your end.

    This looks like a fun way to implement test prep with my students. I’m realizing now that there is a lot of prep work on my end, so I do wish there was a digital version. But I know my students will have a lot of fun solving and finding the answers together!

  40. Carrie D.

    My students enjoyed reviewing our fraction unit using this. Well put together – the color coding was perfect for letting kids work in small groups together. The directions were clear, but I believe half of the directions are rewritten a second time. That made it a little unclear at first until I realized they were repeating. Or, I misunderstood them!!!

  41. Scarlett Walker

    This is very involved. I haven’t had time to print everything just yet.

  42. TAMARA B.

    Looks like a great review, but it was a lot of work to put together. Can’t wait to try it with my fifth graders!
