3rd Grade Math – The Case of Missing Valentines Escape Room & Webscape™
⭐ This 3rd grade math escape room is a low prep/no-prep way to increase student engagement while practicing math skills. Students complete four challenges to solve the Valentine’s Day mystery! To complete each challenge, students work through a set of math questions. In each set, students solve multiplication & division problems, rounding, fraction, and word problems. Students use the Valentine Decoder to help them unlock the secret codes and complete each challenge.
Where did the valentines go? On February 14th, when the kids in Ms. Heart’s class came back from lunch, they found empty boxes where their handcrafted cards had been stuffed. As an amateur sleuth, will you rule out the suspects, one by one, to solve the Valentine’s Day Mystery?
