⭐Looking for a fun and engaging way to involve your Year 7 students in a fun math activity?⭐
❤️The Queen of Hearts has trapped your whole class in her old abandoned house.
In order to escape, you must use your knowledge of number facts to convince her to let you go.
She has created a number of riddles for you to solve and won’t let you escape until you can give her the answer to all 5.
⭐Solve the problems at each level and be sure to record each answer so that you can tell her the answer to the riddles.
⭐Once all levels are complete, retrieve the completion code to break out and save the day.
You must hurry and escape before you remain trapped in her house for a long time….and believe me, she is a dreadful cook!!! And has a very bad temper (Her favourite saying is “Off with their heads!” but don’t worry, she is all bluff)
⭐What is Included?⭐
•A set of printable workcards and Puzzles
•Master code sheet (1 for each group)
•A PowerPoint version of the game
•A Google forms version of the game (see the links on the next page)
I have also included a link for teachers to use this resource with PROWISE. Instructions on how to set up an account are also included in this resource
⭐How to set up the activity⭐
✅Print a master code sheet for each group or pair, and a set of workcards if using a printed version
✅Give students the link to the Google forms version if you are going to be using iPads to complete this activity
✅Print award certificates and achievement keys for each puzzle.
Plastic bags to keep activity sheets in, and placed around the room
✅Students have a pack each of all of the worksheets and they will get a new puzzle/challenge each time that they complete the puzzle and show the final result to the teacher. (Teacher has the master sheets to double check answers)
How long will this activity take?
This activity would easily take an hour to complete, depending on the skills and abilities of the students. I would recommend working in groups no smaller than 4, so that they can divide the challenge tasks up between them, or they can have designated roles
1.Code breaker – who looks up the symbol and completes it on the answer sheet
2.IT responder who records the correct answers into the Google forms document
3.Mathematicans who take on the task of completing the activities.
4.I strongly suggest that these roles are rotated throughout the activity.
What is an escape room?
✅An Escape room is a puzzle game in which students solve riddles and puzzles and find clues to finish tasks. In this Escape Room students solve puzzles to receive reward cards.
✅No, there is not actually a room that is locked-although you could set up your event in that way.
Setting up the activity
✅Read through all the teacher directions. Copy the code sheet, puzzles,and answer sheets.
✅How much time will it take to prep? It takes me about 30 minutes to copy, laminate, and set up. Less time if you have the sheets already printed an laminated before hand.
How does it work?
✅Divide your class into teams. Each team will have the clue sheets and the first puzzle to start .
✅Explain that the first clue will have a riddle to solve, and they can move on to the next one once it is solved. The aim is to complete all 5 puzzles plus the final hidden code. It is important to keep track of each team, and the puzzle that they are up to.
✅The team that unlocks the 5 puzzles and the hidden code first will be declared the winners.The offer of a prize is up to your discretion
