## Who Stole the Halloween Party Treats? – Halloween  Escape Room Mystery Activity

On the night of the Baylor School Halloween Dance and party, everyone arrives in costume and brings their favourite Halloween treat bucket to collect goodies from the treat table.  They wait patiently outside the hall doors, readying themselves for the treat table raid.

Mr. French arrives outside the hall and slowly unlocks the hall doors, reminding everyone to be patient and wait in line to get to the table. As he pulls the doors open, the crowd surges toward the treat table. But then….everyone stops!

The treat table is EMPTY! The party is ruined… unless your students can solve the mystery and find all the loot!

## Practise Multiplication and Division with a Halloween Escape Room!

Designed with Year 3 and Year 4 students in mind, this escape room is the perfect addition to the end of your introductory or review lessons on multiplication and division. Students will progress through a series of clues/challenges in which they will solve problems to reveal clues. When applied to a logic-puzzle-style list of suspects, these clues will lead to the thief’s identification.

This escape room makes for an ideal rainy day activity, a fun Halloween activity, and an exciting way to help your students practise single-digit multiplication and division up to 12. Divide students into pairs or teams and provide each with a guidebook. Each guidebook contains five challenges that, when solved correctly, lead to the clues needed to eliminate suspects and locate the thief.

Whatever the reason you incorporate it in your lesson, students will use teamwork and problem-solving skills to develop their maths and problem-solving skills.

## Scaffolding + Extension Tips

Scaffold the activity for your students by

• Reading the introduction and discussing the mission before beginning.
• Put students in teams of 3-4 students, ensuring that you have a stronger reader in the mix to assist with reading.
• Allow students to use a Multiplication chart as a reference during the game.

## Two-Part Halloween Escape Room for Kids

This resource includes two components.

1. Interactive Google Slides Mission Slides – Students will use these slides to familiarise themselves with the mission and progress through the revelation of each clue.
2. Guidebook – This printable component is a group of five puzzle-style challenges for students to complete problems. The clues on these pages will lead them to click the correct clue answer in the Google Slide file, allowing them to progress through the activity.
