This PLOT ELEMENTS ESCAPE ROOM breakout activity uses fractured fairy tales to teach and reinforce the elements of a plot. It is a fun, team building ADVENTURE that requires reading comprehension skills, understanding of plot elements, creative writing, inferencing, and problem-solving.
The adventure begins when YOU, the most awesome teacher in the history of the world, take the kids on a little trip to a publishing house. Things go a bit awry, and the kids have to save the day by rising to the required tasks!
Kids will be "working" but they'll be having so much fun that they won't even realize how much they are learning!
⭐This resource is also part of this growing bundle at tremendous savings! ⭐

that students can use LONG after they have escaped! My kids use this for reference ALL YEAR LONG! ;)
♦ Reading activities that require kids to identify elements of a story's plot.
♦ A compare/contrast task so that students will examine the plot elements of an original fairy tale and compare it to its fractured counterpart.
♦ A fun sequencing activity.
♦ A creative writing assignment that will leave kids in stitches as THEY fracture a story!
♦ FUN codes and puzzles that students have to solve.
♦ At-a-glance answers.
♦ Two exit slip options: One is reflective, and the other is on plot.
♦ Awards/brag tags to celebrate a successful escape!
=======WHAT DO I HAVE TO SUPPLY?=======
All that is needed is a printer, folder, scissors, and a glue stick. 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!
=======WHAT MAKES THIS SPECIAL?=======
The storyline is interactive and immersive. YOUR students are directly involved in the story. It will provide you with a perfect opportunity to observe your students problem solving and working as a team. All of our escape resources are also great to use for an observation!
=======HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?=======
Completing the entire escape will probably take about 40-60 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!
