It’s back to school time! The BEST (and craziest) time of the year! Set your students up with a Back to School Escape Room to build community before curriculum!
This Back to School Escape Room is set up in 6 parts, but can go in any order: Eraser Equations (addition and subtraction—solve for variable), Parts of Speech Pencils (identify nouns, verbs, and adjectives), Sticky Goals (set team goals on glue sticks), Our New Year Theme (watch a Kid President YouTube video and create a class theme), Back to School Haiku (write a team haiku about returning to school), and Mark the Mistakes (grammar and spelling corrections).
Prep, set-up, and completing this Back to School Escape Room is simple! Allow for 1.5-2 hours total. Students will complete each part, show you their answer key or product, and unscramble a riddle to complete each round. Once students have unscrambled each code card, they “unlock” the box. I have a reward box students will reach in for a prize (reward coupons, pencils, candy, erasers, etc). Parts can be manipulated/cut to fit the needs and time in your classroom (i.e. you can implement 5 parts instead of 6, or you can cut the code cards to save time, etc).
I hope you and your students have fun breaking the Back to School codes!
Thanks for viewing!
