Oh no! A naughty elf has locked Santa’s reindeer in the barn! Without his reindeer to pull the sleigh, Santa can’t deliver the toys! Can your students use their literacy, math, and problem-solving skills to help Buster the Detective Elf solve the clues and figure out the combinations to the locks in order to save Christmas?

This fun, easy to set up (no props needed) escape room will keep your students engaged and learning the days before Christmas break! They will love finding and figuring out the clues and lock combinations that will help free Santa's reindeer in time for Christmas! It is a great way to practice and review skills while working together as a team!

I have also included a bonus activity. After students have solved all the clues and set the reindeer free, they can use inferencing and deductive reasoning skills to help Buster the Elf Detective eliminate suspects from his elf list and figure out which one locked up Santa's reindeer.

If you have never done an escape room with your students before, no worries! You will receive:

  • Teacher instructions for preparing (no props needed - large envelopes are optional, just print & go), setting up, and conducting the escape room
  • Table of Contents
  • Whole-Class & Small Group Instructions
  • Story Cards & Written Narrations for Each (color and black/white) - sets the stage for the escape room and gets students "hooked"
  • Printable Clues and Answer Sheets - puzzles, mazes, activities that review skills
  • Instructions for Each Clue
  • Printable Answer Keys
  • Bonus Activity: Naughty Elf Suspects - students will use inferencing and deductive reasoning skills to eliminate suspects until only one remains
  • Reward Certificates (color and black/white) - special "Santa's Star Problem-Solver" certificates "signed by Santa Clause"
