Cracking the Classroom Code™ 5th Grade Measurement and Data Escape Room

$5.00

Will your class escape in time? Oops! Your students have accidentally set their time machine back to prehistoric times. They are now roaming around with dinosaurs. This isn’t even the bad news though, because they have somehow lost the time machine! To make it back home, students must solve a string of clues and math problems hidden throughout the room. This is a review game for the concepts taught in 5th grade, under the domain of Measurement and Data. If your class has never played an escape game or breakout game before, I suggest playing as a whole class for the first time.

Will your class escape in time? Oops! Your students have accidentally set their time machine back to prehistoric times. They are now roaming around with dinosaurs. This isn’t even the bad news though, because they have somehow lost the time machine! To make it back home, students must solve a string of clues and math problems hidden throughout the room.

**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:
Measurement conversions
Line plots

    One of the best Common Core Aligned “escape rooms” I have come across! Well worth it!

  8. Julia Davis

    This was a great activity to review for our measurement unit test. The questions with fractional line plots were also a good review of adding fractions and turning them into mixed numbers.

    These are a great activity to review a topic and engage the students. I have 90 minutes blocks and these typically take more than a day to get done.
