About this resource : This escape room style activity provides students with a collaborative way to review 8th Grade Math skills. Included are eight challenges that require students to use skills from each group of standards to find codes that will unlock each puzzle. CLICK HERE for a preview!
This escape room is NOT… Even though this is an “End of Year” escape it is not a comprehensive, complete review of all the 8th grade standards. Math escapes do focus on content but the primary focus is on the collaboration and the problem solving. This activity should not be used for a year end test review but should be used as a fun way to wrap up the year or an engaging way to start 9th grade by reviewing old skills!
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.
