Cracking the Classroom Code™ 5th Grade Operations in Base Ten Escape Room

$5.00

Will your class escape in time? No Way! The animals at the zoo have escaped, and your students have been tasked with putting them back into their proper locations. This is a review game for the math concepts taught in 5th grade under the domain of numbers and operations in base ten. 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.

Description

Will your class escape in time? No Way! The animals at the zoo have escaped, and your students have been tasked with putting them back into their proper locations. This is a review game for the math concepts taught in 5th grade under the domain of numbers and operations in base ten. 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.

**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 in this game include:
Numbers and Operations in Base Ten
*Powers of 10
*Comparing decimals
*Writing numbers in expanded form
*Rounding decimals
*Multiplying multi-digit numbers
*adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing decimals.

    This was a bit challenging for the start of the year- but my G&T kids LOVED it once I explained the math concepts. I knew this was intended to be used at the middle or end of 5th grade, so I was not surprised that it was a little challenging.
