**Digital Math Escape Rooms**

Digital math escape rooms have been getting some great feedback from teachers and students:

*"I've greatly enjoyed using escape room activities with students in the past and struggled with how to implement those types of activities virtually. This activity did a great job of merging the concepts and skills of parallel & perpendicular lines with the fun and intrigue of an escape room! " - Elizabeth J.*

*"This was SOOO much fun to use with my students. They Loved everything about the escape room! Thank you!!" - Dani B.*

*"I like to spice up my teaching by offering my students a variety of math activities. Students are challenged with solving the math problems and they stay engaged. I time them to see who can unlock the locks first. Exciting!" - Leinani K.*

*"I love these activities and so do my students. We both love the self-checking factor: me because it actually requires my students to trouble shoot what they are doing incorrectly and gives them some motivation to figure out the solution; them because it is a 100 if they can escape and they enjoy the process of trying to breakout." - Kristin K.*

#### How do these digital math escape rooms work?

Each math escape room is built in Google Forms with no outside links. Everything is housed within the Google Form. This way you never have to worry that a link will be blocked or broken.

Each escape room consists of 5 puzzles. In each puzzle there are 4 questions to answer. Once students answer the 4 questions, they find their answers in the answer choices grid. This will generate a 4-letter code. Entering that code into the answer box on the Form will unlock the lock. There are 5 locks to unlock in each escape room activity. Each escape room is set with *response validation*, giving students the instant feedback they love and eliminating your need to grade.

*Important note: You can still assign these digital escape rooms if you are not in a Google school. *If your students do not have Google logins, but you do have access to your own Google Drive, you can still assign these digital math escape rooms to students. Students do not need to log into Google or even have Google accounts. As long as you can house the escape room on your own Google Drive, and Google is not blocked on student devices, you can send it to students no matter which learning platform your school uses. Directions for sending the escape room to students are within the escape room PDF file (the link to the digital escape room is also embedded within the PDF).

Digital math escape room bundle for middle school |

*"This is one of the greatest purchases I have ever bought from TpT"*-Kristi

*"BEST BUNDLE EVER. My students say they LOVE the problems in these escapes. I have used many of the escapes this year, and I LOVE that they cannot submit the assignment until all of the questions are answered correctly. Thank you so much for making this resource!"*-Lori

#### Sending the escape room to students:

**purple "send"**in the upper right corner. A popup window will appear.

**link icon**, copy this link and share the link with students. This is the only link students will need to complete the activity.

I would love to have an escape room for all the factoring methods: GCF, grouping, a=1, a>1, special cases (perfect square trinomials, difference of two squares).

ReplyDeleteYou got it! I will get this on my list. Can you please send me an email so I can send it to you when done? shana@scaffoldedmath.com

DeleteMe, too! Would be SO helpful!

DeleteYou got it!

DeleteThat would be amazing!

DeleteI would love to see one with exponents, and one with logs. Thank you.

ReplyDeleteHi Inna! I completed the solving logarithms escape room and would love to get it to you! My email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com

DeleteIs it possible you have one with 2nd grade addition and subtraction with regrouping. The students can master it without regrouping but get confused when they need to regroup.

ReplyDeleteHi Cassandra, I'd love to chat about this. I'd like to make sure to get the problem types and format right for kids that young. My email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com

DeleteI'd love to see a digital breakout room that uses the properties of quadrilaterals-parallelograms, square, rectangle, rhombus, kite, trapezoid

ReplyDeleteHi DeeCee, thank you for your comment. My email address is shana@scaffoldedmath.com if you'd like to send me an email about this. I will think about how to frame the questions to ask students about quadrilaterals.

DeleteI'm thinking about making a digital escape room involving the main algebraic skills my geometry students will need second semester: Solving linear equations, solving systems of linear equations, solving proportions, and solving quadratic equations using square roots. If YOU made one instead, I'm sure I'd purchase it!

ReplyDeleteI will give this one some thought! If you'd like it when it's done, my email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com. I like to send them via email as a thank you for the topic idea.

DeleteI love these!! Is it possible to have one for solving exponential & logarithmic equations?

ReplyDeleteThank you so much for sharing!!!

Hi Ale! I finished the logarithmic equations digital escape room and would love to get it to you. My email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com

DeleteHi,

ReplyDeleteJust purchased three of the digital escape rooms. I wasn't feeling well and needed to find something quick for my students to do since I was leaving school. I love that you have them for multiple subject areas in math. Can you make one for Surface Area and Volume?

Thank you, Natasha. I hope you feel better soon. Can you please send me an email? I just have a couple questions about the shapes. I'll email it to you when it's done as a thank you for the topic suggestion. shana@scaffoldedmath.com

DeleteJust coming back to update that I made an escape room for surface area and volume (of cones, cylinders and spheres:)

DeleteI sent you an email about doing a possible escape room on polynomial naming & operations review. Hopefully it is something you can do. I have a bit of a short turn around time. thanks!

ReplyDeleteI hope your students enjoy the escape room, Mary Anne!

DeleteI've been wanting to use escape rooms for a while. I teach Geometry and would love to add these to engage the students. Is it possible that you can make one for Points, Lines, and Planes? Or at least create a template for teachers to make their own for any topics that don't have an escape room yet?

ReplyDeleteHi Akira, thank you for your comment. I make the images in PowerPoint then import them into Google Forms, so a template would be hard. But I am happy to make one for points, lines and planes and email it to you. My email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com.

DeleteI love using digital escape rooms! Any suggestions on how to use them most effectively with an unleveled class (i.e., special education, inclusion, honors, CP students are mixed in one class)? Any feedback is welcome!

ReplyDeleteUnleveled classes bring their own set of challenges. My classes were unleveled when I taught in Boston. My suggestion would be for kids to work together (if possible) as partners. You could also make a copy of the escape room and delete a section (or two) from the copy so that some students/pairs of students complete 3 or 4 puzzles instead of all 5. If you need help doing this, my email is shana@scaffoldedmath.com.

DeleteDo you have an escape room bundle of only 6th grade math content? I see a "middle school math" bundle, but I won't need the 7th and 8th grade content. Maybe I need to just buy those all individually?

ReplyDeleteHi there, I don't have a 6th grade only bundle right now, just for middle school.

DeleteThank you for taking the time to create these escape rooms. They are much more student-friendly than some of the other ones I've seen on Teachers Pay Teachers and other websites. Oftentimes, when I have tried to use escape rooms I've bought or downloaded from other creators, I usually need to adapt them to meet my students' level. If I don't adapt then, then the activity needs to be teacher-led, as opposed to individual, group, or station work (which is not as fun or rewarding for students). Again, I just wanted to say that these look great, and I can't wait to use them with my 8th-grade resource students!

ReplyDeleteThank you so much, Tarah. My goals for the digital math escape rooms were for them to be easy to assign and enjoyable for students, so this makes me so happy to hear:)

DeleteI have purchased the majority of your other escape rooms? I am a Special Education teacher, and need lower levels of math. My Classes I CO teach in are LOVING the escape rooms. Is there a way you could make one with one digit multiplication, Adding and Subtracting with/ without Regrouping? I would love for my adatpive students to be able to use the escape rooms since my other students are using them. Thank you so much for creating a resource that students and teachers love!

ReplyDeleteI can do this! Can you please send me an email? I like to send activity suggestions for free as a thank you for the idea. shana@scaffoldedmath.com

DeleteIs there any chance you could create a 3 - digit adding and subtracting template for an escape room!? I have bought a lot of your escape room and I absolutley love them and my Second Grade Above In Grade Members Do Too! It's kind of hard to keep them satisfied by regular math because they always complain it's either too easy or too hard but with your Templates it's lukewarm!

ReplyDeleteCan you please send me an email with a bit more details? I am mostly wondering how much regrouping I should include. shana@scaffoldedmath.com

DeleteI really enjoyed the way you made these resources, they are awesome.

ReplyDeleteThank you, Ghausia!

Delete@ScaffoldedMath I enjoyed all of the resources you have available - especially the escape rooms!

ReplyDeleteThank you so much, Aja! This means a lot! :)
