Are you looking for a fun way to celebrate the 100th day of school? You students will love this escape room! Your students enlisted in the Kindness Army! They received notice that they will go to a secret country to spread kindness. The only problem? They have to complete the tasks to figure out where they will go on their mission.
For my kindergarten class, I invite parents to come help run a group. This is a great way to get parents involved!
This is how this escape room works:
Print papers and place them in large envelop. Put all of task one papers in task one envelope and so on for all the tasks. Make enough for each group to have their own envelope for each task.
TASK 1- BOOT CAMP: Give each group the task one envelope. They will read the introduction and task card. Once they complete the task, give them two letters from the word ”FRANCE.” They will use these letters at the end of all the tasks. When they complete the exercises, they will turn in their completed paper and envelope to get the task 2 envelope.
TASK 2- TESTING THEIR SKILLS: For task 2, use any manipulative you want. Dixie cups, cubes, marshmallows, etc. will work great. They will have 100 seconds to build the tallest tower. The person in that group to build the tallest tower will get their own secret mission to complete during task 3. I put this in a separate envelope. Once they are done, give them the task 3 envelope and two more letters.
TASK 3- PRACTICE BUILDING THEIR FORT WHILE THEY ARE ON MISSION: students will use 100 manipulatives or materials to practice building their fort. You can place They can use Dixie cups, popsicle sticks, cubes, straws, etc. to build their fort. When they finish, they will all test their fort by blowing on it. If it falls over, they have 100 seconds to make changes.
When they are done, give them the last two letters.
Once they have all the letters, they will get the last clue card. They will use the clues and letters to find the name of the country. Once they finished, they can take their picture with the “We Escaped!” sign and get their certificate.
*Snack labels are included also!* I like to set out books and let them eat when they finish.
