Lucky’s Map Math Escape Room for 2nd Grade
⭐ This 2nd grade math escape room is a truly immersive experience and themed perfectly for St. Patrick’s Day! Students navigate their way out of a dungeon in Blarney Castle where they have been trapped for stealing Lucky the Leprechaun’s gold coins. To escape, students complete four unique math standards-based challenges. The challenges require students to practice addition, subtraction, money problems, and telling time. Students add their answers to the St. Patrick’s Day Magical Decoding Tool to help them unlock the secret codes and complete each challenge. Students earn items used for each step on their way out of the castle. This resource is a great St. Patrick’s Day activity and printable and digital versions are included!
