TES Virtual Escape Room

  • Published September 25, 2020

    Trinity Elementary teacher Jennifer Tanner is making sure her students have fun and practice their math skills at the same time.

    On September 24, Tanner's fourth grade students visited a virtual escape room where they were given a packet full of math problems they needed to solve.

    "When students type in a correct code and get to go to the next level, they feel proud and excited," Tanner said. "They also like working toward a prize at the end of the challenge."

    Tanner's class has been learning about multi-step word problems. She says a virtual escape room is a fun way to get students engaged with a form of math that can often be difficult.

    "Sometimes teaching certain standards can be daunting and dry," she said. "With this activity, we're able to have fun all while practicing the standards."
