CN: Escape game in Maths class - World Water Day07 avr. 2021
On March 22, 2021, on the occasion of World Water Day, 5th grade students (10-11 yo) were looking for a key to a locked well during Maths classes. Pupils worked on tasks individually at home because we are on distance learning nowadays.
Their task was to go through various exercises, which were focused on working with graphs, reading diagrams and tables, filling in the text about water, etc. The opening image of the WATER CYCLE IN NATURE served as a start point for them. Moving pictures offered videos, diagrams, counting exercises or puzzles.
After the correct solution of the exercise, they were shown an indication - one letter. Exercises could be solved by students randomly, from the obtained clues they had to put together two words - WATER DAY (in Slovak – DEŇ VODY). If they had formed these words correctly and entered them in the last lock, a locked well opened for them.
The main aim of the activity was to learn the importance of ecofriendly behaviour and to understand measurements and data analysis to interprete the mathematical information.
Pupils were fascinated by this game, they sent the teacher a password in the message to open the well. Their feedback was positive and they would like to play such games in the future too.
