How to Create Maze Activities plus Free Examples

 


A maze is a self check activity that students enjoy and teachers can use to quickly assess student understanding. See below on how to create your own or just use one of my free templates/activities. 

Creating a maze requires about a 15 minute set up and then time to add your content.  The great part is once you set up a template you like, you can reuse it over and over again.  To create your own maze open a new Google Drawings (in your Google Drive).  Select the shape you want to hold your questions; I typically pick a square or circle.  After you select the shape, copy it (Control+C) and paste it (Control+V).  You repeat this process until you have a row.  Once you have a full row hold down your mouse and drag over the row and copy it.  You can then paste it and drag it into place.  You will repeat pasting until you get the number of rows you want.  To connect your questions, I use arrows or rectangles.  Pick yours and put it between two of your question shapes.  After you do that once you will copy and paste it into your maze to fill in all the spaces between the shapes.  

Once my template is complete, I make a copy and add my content. By making a copy first, you can reuse that maze again for another topic.  I use the Equatio extension to easily add all of my math problems into the maze.   

I've made some maze already and of course they are free:

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
