Bring a Catholic escape room into your youth group, or your religion, theology, or CCD classes with these five mini escape rooms. Great for use during Catholic Schools Week, review sessions, classroom filler activities, end-of-term activities, and more! Each escape room can be used independently of the others or consecutively, depending on how much time you have.
There are five mini escape rooms within this product. Each escape room includes task cards, Google form and link, teacher instructions, answer key, and student instruction handout. For each escape room, students type answers in a Google form — or submit answers to a teacher — and are awarded a letter. Once students have received all letters, they unscramble the phrase to answer the question and escape the room.
This product can be used with or without technology, though you will print the same materials for both types of facilitation to make it easier on you. PDF and a link to video instructions are included.
The escape rooms are as follows:
☆ Bible Verse Fill-in-the-Blank: Students must fill in the blank with the appropriate word from the Bible. Hints are provided on each card. 12 total cards with 3 verses per card.
☆ Biblical Numbers: Students must answer each question on the task card with a numeral. 8 total cards with 3 questions per card.
☆ Catholic Numbers: Students must answer each question on the task card with a numeral. 8 total cards with 3 questions per card.
☆ Mass Items: Students must identify the name or location of a Catholic mass element (clip art) on each card. 8 total cards with 2 items per card.
☆ Prayers: Students must identify the name of the prayer that includes the given line. Prayers are given numbers for easy reference. 8 total cards with 3 prayer lines per card. The prayers included are Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Act of Contrition, St. Michael the Archangel, Guardian Angel Prayer, Memorare, Anima Christi, Magnificat, and the Nicene Creed.
The download also includes a master teacher instruction page for Google and non-Google facilitation and help cards (students can get an answer free if they answer the question on the help card). The products are .pdfs that cannot be edited, although the Googles Forms can be edited.
★ Plan for 20-45 minutes for each mini escape room depending on prior knowledge level of your students.
★ Recommendations: You may consider letting students use Bibles and/or their notes depending upon the level of your classes and what they already know.
★ The Bible verses come from the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops Bible web site.
