Escape from Emoji Jungle (3rd grade) features fractions on number lines, comparing fractions, bar models, and more! This resource is aligned to third grade fraction standards and covers all major standards, so it's great for the end of a unit or test prep!
Are you looking for a more engaging was to practice the math standards during test prep time or at the end of your fraction unit? Escape rooms are the most fun way to review the standards while encouraging team work, critical thinking, and problem solving! In this classroom escape, students will compete as teams to escape Emoji Jungle!
This team escape challenge is great for teams of 4-6 students, up to 8 teams. The best thing is, you don't have to prepare envelopes for every single team. This activity was created to be much easier to prep than the traditional class escape challenge. You will use far less paper and far fewer envelopes than other challenges.
1 plastic baggy or small envelope for each group
5 large manila folders (total)
1 letter envelope (total)

You and your classmates were camping in a remote jungle location when you heard a strange sound. The sound got louder, and you realized that it was drums! It seems that you stumbled upon an ancient tribe: the jungle emojis! They were not happy to have their jungle disturbed. The Emoji Ruler decided that he was going to keep most of you to help build his new temple. He agreed to let just one group of students return home. That brings us to now: You and your classmates are about to embark on a race to solve the puzzles and clues that the emojis throw at you. Only one team will make it out of Emoji Jungle… will it be yours?
Estimated time for this escape: 60-90 minutes.
During this game, they will practice:
★ fractions on number lines
★ bar models
★ equivalent fractions
★ comparing fractions using >, <, and =
★ expressing whole numbers as fractions
★ basic word problems
I also provide something very important for a group review game: individual student booklets to keep ALL students accountable. These are called escape logs in the game.
I've even provided a way to prevent one student from doing all of the work. Directions and special cards are included in the game to help manage it so that all students are competing equal work and successfully working together!
Don't bore your students with worksheets for test prep - let them ESCAPE EMOJI JUNGLE!
