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 5th grade multiplication skills. Students will be multiplying multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

This is an interactive game where the students are timed. They are trying to escape a mob of zombies that has overtaken the school. Students must solve a string of math 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.

    I had some students that really loved this! Super engaging, and though it took a long time to set up, it was definitely worth it! I had some other students that were just watching as the other team finished to get their clues. I will have to brainstorm how to fix that. I am wondering how easily that could be fixed? Would love ideas if you have any!

  23. USUKTeacher

    Lots of prep but I know my ss will love it.

  24. audriana P.

    My class loved doing this. They wanted to break out and get the right answer. The teamwork and excitement in the air made my day. I also got jello that was red so either if they lost or won they got a treat for trying their best.

    Thanks for the great resource!

  100. Nicole Teaches

    The instructions for prepping it were easy to follow and I love the idea of escape rooms. This type of activity just didn’t work well for my class (more bickering than teamwork and skipping clues). Maybe next year my class will be a better fit for the activity!

  104. Anna Marie Woloszyn

    We may have to have a Zombie Christmas party to get these in. My students will love them. A lot of patience to set up, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to reuse them again next year!

  105. Seandra H.

    My students LOVED this! I’ve already loaded your math bundle and ela bundle into my cart – can’t wait to use those with my kiddos!

    I actually used this with my 4th-5th graders on Halloween. I even dressed up as a zombie to stay with the theme! They loved it! So easy to understand and set-up. I ordered the Christmas ones and look forward to doing those soon.

    This worked out perfectly! I set up three for my three groups (which took a lot of time) but it was well worth it! Students were heard saying “this is the best day ever!” Thank you! I will purchase more of your Escape Room files!

  137. Melissa G.

    Students had so much fun!

  140. Tana P.

    My students had some much fun trying to escape the room. I wish I could have given them more time! Gonna try the Thanksgiving and Christmas ones!

  141. Rulers and Pan Balances

    Super fun and engaging. Not hard to put together but does require a good deal of prep time. Most students need at least 60 minutes to either finish or come close to finishing. Make sure to let students know that every card requires a math problem. Eager students tend to skip a few of the problems as they go trying to figure out the next clue.

  142. Buyer

    Engaging!

  143. Jennifer O.

    My kids are going to love this!

  144. Amy B.

  151. LeeAnn Schumacher

    My students love these!

  152. S Gordon

    Super fun activity as a multiplication review. But, oh my goodness, this took 1.5+ hours to assemble. If I had known it was such a time commitment, I honestly would not have purchased it.

  167. Amanda R.

    This is a great resource.

  168. Amanda J.
