Description

This Back to School Escape Room is designed specifically for middle school! There are even FOUR possible solutions, so you won't have to worry about "leaked" info. if you have multiple classes!

The escape room adventure begins when YOU- the most awesome teacher in the history of the world- plan a back to school field trip! Your goal is to work on team building and following directions while your kids learn about sailing an old ship, but things go amiss when a certain sea god gets involved. In order to break out and rescue the entire class from the dreaded doldrums, your students must work with their group to solve a series of FUN challenges based on comprehension and steeped with a variety of skills!

Using critical thinking, problem-solving, and reading comprehension, kids will have to follow directions carefully. They will complete a series of activities on GROWTH MINDSET, STUDY SKILLS, and CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS. Each challenge brings kids closer to exactly what they need to escape.

⭐This resource is included in this bundle at great savings!⭐

ELA ESCAPE ROOM GROWING BUNDLE: A YEAR OF ESCAPES

======WHAT ARE TEACHERS SAYING?======

"This was my very first experience with an escape room challenge. Loved the ease of use and resources!"

"Wow! My students really enjoyed this and I loved how teacher friendly it was. Thank you!"

"Once my kids beat this escape room, they asked to play it again! Great, fun, back to school resource."

"The plan is to use this to launch my kids into some growth mindset lessons. Can't wait! Thank you for a great, engaging activity that is well put together and very thoughtful!"

======WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS ESCAPE ROOM?======

♦ At-a-glance instructions for EASY set-up and organization.

♦ FOUR possible solutions, so if you have more than one class, you'll have no problem with kids telling others the answer.

♦ Instructional reference information cards on growth mindset and study skills, that students can use LONG after they have escaped the doldrums!

♦ At-a-glance answers.

♦ Reflective exit slips.

♦ Growth mindset posters

♦ Awards to celebrate a successful escape.

=======WHAT DO I HAVE TO SUPPLY?=======

All that is needed is a color printer (optional but adds a nice touch), a few envelopes, folders, sheets of cardstock, and paper fasteners. Unlike other breakout activities, you don't have to go out and buy expensive locks and boxes, because we've included everything you need to print and go!

=======WHAT MAKES THIS SPECIAL?=======

The storyline is interactive and immersive. YOUR students are directly involved in the story. It will provide you with a perfect opportunity to observe your students problem solving and working as a team. All of our escape resources are also great to use for an observation.

=======HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?=======

Completing the entire back to school escape can take anywhere from 40-60 minutes, depending on how quickly the class is able to complete the activities. Students will not have to leave the room. This is NOT a scavenger hunt.

Have fun and be sure to come back for more ESCAPE ROOM challenges!
