This winter math escape room is a great game for reviewing adding, subtracting, multiplication facts, associative, and commutative properties. It is reindeer-themed, not Christmas-themed, so it can be used with all students.
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 the Emoji Emoji Reindeer Farm!
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.

Your class is excited for a day at the reindeer farm! After the bus drops you off, you head towards the main barn, hoping to spot a reindeer. You see something weird out of the corner of your eye. Wait…is that an emoji reindeer?! Just as your class realizes that this is not a normal reindeer farm, one of the emojireindeer trots up to you. “I’m Dancer,” she says. “We’re in charge of this farm now, and you’re not leaving.”
Estimated time for this escape: 60-90 minutes.

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 review - let them ESCAPE THE EMOJI REINDEER FARM!
