Your kids are locked in school forever...unless they can work in groups to solve a series of FUN comprehension and writing challenges and puzzles!
Using critical thinking skills, problem-solving, reading comprehension, figurative language, and writing (we even threw in a simple math problem for those who love numbers), kids will complete a series of challenges. Each challenge brings them closer to the final riddle and the key that unlocks the school!

The fractured fairytale storyline involves a giant, a witch, and Jack (of beanstalk fame).
Everything is organized and ready to go!
♦ At-a-glance instructions for easy setup.
♦ FOUR possible solutions, so if you have more than one class, you'll have no problem with kids telling others the answer. (We've even included a jigsaw option so that you can choose to have all of the kids work together to solve the puzzle at the end!)
♦ At-a-glance answers.
♦ Exit slips.
♦ Awards to celebrate a successful escape.
♦ A fun and optional PowerPoint slide "reveal" of the key.
All that is needed is a color printer and a few envelopes or folders. 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!
* This escape activity is perfect for kids in grades 5-8, but it is also appropriate for mid-late year 4th graders.
Our ESCAPE activities are interactive and immersive. YOUR students are directly involved in the story. This is perfect to use for an observation, to set up for a substitute, to use as an end of the year activity, to use as a review, or to use on any day that you want to relax and watch your students have a blast AND learn together with a team!
Completing the entire escape can take anywhere from 40-90 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!
