Description

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 your science unit about the solar system. To play this game your students should know the following vocabulary: orbit, rotation, revolution, planets, comet, meteor, meteorite, meteoroid, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, solar system, galaxy, Milky Way, asteroid, satellite, inner planets, and outer planets.

This is an interactive game where the students are timed. They are trying to save Saturn, which has started to drift out of orbit. Students must solve a string of science questions and clues, as well as decode different ciphers. If your class has never played an escape style 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.

    While the resources does take time to prepare, one can use it over and over again with small additions. And once you create one Code, you will know how to do the next one. Can’t wait to use the next one!

  40. Special Education for All Students

    This was awesome! I used this as a whole-class review before FSA Testing. It is time consuming to initially set up, as there’s a lot of cutting and organizing, but the directions are clear and include pictures. Once it’s all set up, it’s easy for the kids to complete. I will definitely be purchasing more of these activities for next school year!

    This was fun for my student. Well put together and easy to understand.

    I bought this to do as a wrap-up activity at the end of my grade 6 solar system unit, and I can’t wait to do with my class! It’s extremely thorough and I love that there’s the option to do it as a whole class OR split the class into smaller groups, each with their own mission. My kids know this is coming up in a few weeks and they are so pumped!
