    Let’s transform your classroom for a grand adventure with animal adaptations! Students will read about adaptations and complete comprehension activities during your reading block. At the same time they will be working their way through a fabulous escape room featuring vocabulary matching, math problems, and solving a secret message code. Add a little STEM Challenge to the mix and your students will definitely ask for more of these combinations!
