There are five Christmas escape room-type (trivia) challenges included in this file. They can be completed individually or in conjunction with one another, depending on the time available in your planning. The challenges could be used as individual, pair or small group activities. A detailed and thorough teacher instruction page
has been included, which provides differentiated instructions and ideas for each of the five challenges included.
: Aside from the materials that you would already have in your classroom (pencils, pens, scissors and colored pencils or crayons), no
additional supplies are needed! These escape room-style games were created as a print-and-go resource, so no extra prep has to be done on your part.
HELP! Santa accidentally locked himself in the toy workshop and he needs your help to get him out! But, before he can be freed from the workshop, you will have to successfully complete a series of tasks and challenges.
Challenge #1: Christmas Carol Hidden Message
I hope you know your Christmas carols because in order to successfully complete this challenge, you will have to be able to identify the correct lines from popular Christmas tunes.
Challenge #2: Encrypted Christmas Message
Put your detective skills in place because this challenge is going to require you to unlock a secret message in a unique font. In order to successfully complete this challenge, you will have to answer a series of questions based on three separate articles written in The North Pole Times
Challenge #3: Christmas Treat Word Maze
Hopefully, you know your Christmas treats because you will have to sharpen your pencil (and eyes!) and pay attention to the letters within the maze. In order to successfully complete this challenge, you will have to collect letters that will spell out a word. This word will lead you to the end of the maze.
Challenge #4: Christmas Movie Trivia
Grab some popcorn and think back to some Christmas movies that you may have viewed over the last few years. In order to successfully complete this challenge, you will have to answer a series of multiple-choice questions about several popular Christmas movies, then work together to solve the lock code.
Challenge #5: Ornament Race/Scavenger Hunt
Put your thinking cap on because you are going to have to race to answer a bunch of Christmas trivia questions, then decorate your tree accordingly. In order to successfully complete this challenge, you will have to correctly color and place symbols on your tree, according to the ornament task cards provided.
*Upon completion of the challenges, three themed ("The Great Christmas Escape") editable certificates have been included, so you can easily type in their name and give each student who participated something for their efforts!*
