This is an Escape Room activity for multiplication. The activity focuses on multiplication of 1, 2 and 3 whole digit numbers by a single digit whole number.
An Escape Room is an adventure in which players solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints, and strategies to complete the objectives at hand.
In this Escape Room, students are presented with a situation. They are trapped in the school by a mad professor and must solve 5 puzzles in order to escape. Each puzzle gives them a them a clue word which they give to the educator in order to receive the next puzzle. As each puzzle is successfully solved they are given a key word - to escape they must use each key word to make a sentence and say this to the educator before time is up!
The activity is designed to be played in small groups. Teacher forms teams. I suggest no more than 4/5 students in a team.
Why this game?
