Escape the School is an awesome breakout room adventure! 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, writing, and math, 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 would like each group to have a different code, here you go! You'll have no problem with kids telling others the answer. (We've also an option to jigsaw, so that you can choose to have the entire class work together to solve the puzzle at the end!)
♦ At-a-glance answers.
♦ Exit slips.
♦ Awards to celebrate a successful escape.
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!
To wrap it all up at the end, there is a fun and optional PowerPoint slide "reveal" of the key.
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!
