Kindergarten Math Escape Room Free Printable

A few days ago, my former Brazilian colleague asked for my help. It was unexpected because I don't reach out to them anymore, but I'm always willing to lend a helping hand even if I'm not working in the same school anymore. 

This colleague of mine was teaching math to kindergarteners. (If she asked me to sub, I wouldn't hesitate to say YES!) And since she knows that I sell resources for teachers (she does not know about my Teachers Pay Teachers store), my colleague asked if she could use one of my math worksheets for her students. I have a lot of fun math resources, but I know everyone will go bananas if they do an escape room. So, I sent her my Free Classifying Objects and Sorting Activity Kindergarten Escape Room.

What are escape rooms?

An escape room is a game in which a team of players discovers clues, solves puzzles, and accomplishes tasks to reach a specific goal in a limited amount of time and "escape" from the room.

How does a math escape room work?

A math escape room is like any other escape room, but the focus is math. Let's say you want your students to practice and master addition within 10; you will create puzzles, riddles, or clues, write an imaginary story, or set up a scavenger hunt for your students to "escape" while adding numbers within 10.

Benefits of an escape room

There are many reasons why an escape room is always a hit in the classroom. 

  1. It develops teamwork. It can also improve the student's communication and social skills.
  2. It increases their problem-solving skills. Escape rooms are a perfect activity for different subjects, such as ELA and science.
  3. They get to think outside the box. Students critically analyze the puzzle and come up with their own solutions.
