Ditch the addition and subtraction worksheets for review and try a math escape room instead! Escape the Emoji Pumpkin Patch (for fall or Halloween) features multi-digit addition and subtraction practice that is pumpkin patch themed for October! This resource is aligned to fourth grade standards and it’s great for the end of a unit or test prep! If you’re a Common Core state, this is great for 4.NBT.B.2.


This is a great way to practice the math standards in the fall, especially during the crazy Halloween week! However, it is not Halloween-themed, so it can be used with all students.

Skills covered:

  • Fluently add and subtract within 1,000,000

Escape rooms are the most fun way to review the standards while encouraging team work, critical thinking, and problem solving! In this classroom escape, students will compete as teams to Escape the Emoji Pumpkin Patch!


This resource is geared towards 4th grade (depending on your standards). Please see below for a list of the specific standards it covers. Click here to find other grade levels and other 4th grade topics.


This team escape challenge is great for teams of 4-6 students, up to 8 teams. The best thing is, you don’t have to prepare envelopes for every single team. This activity was created to be much easier to prep than the traditional class escape challenge. You will use far less paper and far fewer envelopes than other challenges.


Supplies Needed:

  • 5 large manila folders (total)
  • 1 letter envelope (total)
  • Copies of this resource


Your class is excited for a day at the pumpkin patch! After the bus drops you off, you start to look for the perfect pumpkin. You soon realize that not all the pumpkins in the patch are the same when one winks at you! The winking pumpkin looks oddly similar to the emojis on your phone, “wait”is that an emoji pumpkin?!


Just as your class realizes that there are emojipumpkins in the patch, one hops up to you. ‚”Head Pumpkin,” he says. “This is our pumpkin patch now, and yoU’re not leaving.”


After begging Head Pumpkin to let you go, he decides that he will take mercy on your class. “l let one group of you go, but the rest will have to stay and work.” He explains that he has a series of challenges lined up for your class to attempt.


The group that finishes first will get to escape from the Emoji Pumpkin Patch!


Estimated time for this escape: 60-90 minutes.

I also provide something very important for a group review game: individual student booklets to keep ALL students accountable. These are called escape logs in the game.


I’ve even provided a way to prevent one student from doing all of the work. Directions and special cards are included in the game to help manage it so that all students are competing equal work and successfully working together!


Don’t bore your students with worksheets for review – let them ESCAPE THE EMOJI PUMPKIN PATCH!
