Time Machine Math Time Problems Escape Room – 2nd Grade
⭐ This 2nd grade math time problems escape room is a truly immersive experience and themed perfectly for a class of time-telling 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 time telling problems involving time to the nearest hour, half-hour, and quarter-hour. 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!
⭐Comes in both digital Google Slides and printable versions, so it’s perfect for classroom and distance learning. In the digital version, the Time Machine Decoding Tool is a Google Sheet that self-corrects and tells each student when they can continue to the next challenge.
⭐ Integrated videos, thematic items, and a time traveler storyline come together to engage students while developing and enforcing several standards-based mathematics skills.
