6th Grade Ratios and Proportional Reasoning Escape Room Activity
About this resource : This escape room style activity provides students with a collaborative way to review 6th Grade Ratios and Proportional Reasoning Standards. Included are eight challenges that require students to solve basic equations to find codes that will unlock each puzzle.
This escape room is NOT… This resource is not a comprehensive, complete review of this set of standards. Math escapes do focus on content but the primary focus is on the collaboration and the problem solving.
What makes this escape activity different? This activity does not require the challenges to be completed in any particular order. In order for students to “escape” they simply have to find all 8 codes. This allows for (a) differentiation, (b) removal of challenges for time and (c) the ability for you to only make one copy of each challenge because as groups finish one challenge their next one can be whatever is available.
