Math Keypad for Escape Rooms


Escape rooms are really popular especially as we are teaching virtually, however, I haven't been able to find a math keypad to use in mine, so I made one. 

Creating the keypad for your escape room is simple to do in google draw.  By creating your own you can make it exactly how you want it from size, color, all the way to choices.  Start by opening a new google draw.  Once you open the google draw decide which shape you want the keys to be, I typically select a rectangle or a circle.  From there you can start inserting your numbers by clicking into the shape or symbols.  For inserting symbols, I like to use Equatio.  Equatio is a google extension which is free.  Once you finish making your keypad select it all and copy and paste it into your escape room.  By making it in google draw your background is transparent and will take on the background from the slide behind like the picture above has a blue background.  I've pre-made one for you here, once you make your copy, you can change the color or size to fit your needs.

Gimkit Tag Domination

  Gimkit came out with a new mode called Tag: Domination.  This is currently one of my students favorite modes(fishtopia is the other).  This game is similar to physical tag.  Students are split into 2 teams.  To earn energy to run and get upgrades, students must correctly answer questions.  The time to tag and run away alternate and students can see which one they are in on the top left of the screen.  At the end, the team with the most tag win.
