Measurement Conversions Time Machine Math Escape Room & Webscape™ – 4th Grade
⭐ This 4th grade math escape room aligned to 4.MD.A.2 is a truly immersive experience and themed perfectly for a class of time traveling enthusiasts! Students navigate their way through the time stream by completing challenges to help recover items left behind by a time traveler. To repair the time stream, students complete four unique math standards-based challenges. The challenges require students to practice word problems involving distance, time intervals, liquid volumes, masses, and money. Students add their answers to the Time Machine Decoding Tool to help them unlock the secret codes and complete each challenge. Students recover items used for each step on their way to solving this crime. This resource is a great engaging and low prep activity with printable and digital versions included!
