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.

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.
