Escape rooms and breakout classrooms have found their way into today’s elementary classroom! They are such a great way to increase student engagement and to promote collaborative learning. This geometry escape activity is a perfect way to culminate your fourth grade geometry unit.
Here’s what’s included:
- Teacher Directions
- Student Directions
- Clue 1: Complete each of the five geometry task cards. The numbers to the correct answers are the colors for the five color lock. You will need to use the color decoder to find the colors. Place the colors in the order as the number on the cards. This will take you one step closer to the key to escape.
- Clue 2: To complete the 3-by-3 puzzle, you should reconstruct the squares so that all of the images match on every interior side. Remember, you are making a square. Once you complete the puzzle, use the four corner images and the decoder wheel to crack the code! This will lead you to the room where the key is held.
- Clue 3: Match the description of each shape with the corresponding picture example on the right column. Draw a straight line from the left dot to the right dot. The letters that you do not cross out with your lines are the code for your 5-letter lock. Place the letters in alphabetical order. This will lead you to the safe where the key is kept.
- Clue 4: Determine how many sets of parallel lines, perpendicular lines, right angles, acute angles, and obtuse angles are in each shape. When you finish, add the numbers together to discover the next combination. However, since this is a 3-digit lock don’t use the odd number.
This can be used with Breakout Edu boxes or with your own boxes and locks. If you do not have boxes and locks, you may use the digital version, where students submit their answers on Google Forms.
