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!
This awesome resource is a collaboration between Pamela Kranz
and Darlene Anne. It includes at-a-glance instructions for easy set up. A color printer and a few envelopes or folders are all you need. 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!
The fractured fairytale storyline involves a giant, a witch, and Jack (of beanstalk fame). It includes four possible puzzle solutions, so if you have more than one class, you'll have no problem with kids telling others the answer.
As a added bonus, we have even included a jigsaw option that allows the ENTIRE to class find the key together. This will ensure the success of ALL the groups!
Completing the entire escape can take anywhere from 40-90 minutes, depending on how quickly the class is able to complete the activities. To wrap it all up, there is a fun and optional PowerPoint slide "reveal" of the key, as well as a reward key for all of the kids to take home as a memento. An exit slip is also included, so kids will have an opportunity to reflect and give feedback.
Have fun and be sure to come back for more escape room challenges!
