Escape the Snowglobe is a winter breakout adventure that has students using teamwork, reading comprehension skills, figurative language practice, puzzle-solving abilities, and creative writing. Kids will be "working" but having so much fun that they won't realize how much they are learning!
This escape can be used at any time of year. It requires kids to invent a holiday, but it is not based on a "real" holiday. Instead, the activity celebrates friendship and having fun without focusing on gifts.
* ESCAPE THE SNOW GLOBE is now included in this money saving bundle: HOLIDAY ESCAPE BUNDLE
=======WHAT IS INCLUDED?=======
♦ At-a-glance instructions for EASY set-up and organization.
♦ Instructional reference page on literary devices
that students can use LONG after they have escaped the snowglobe! Or should I say "if" they escape the snowglobe? ;)
♦ FUN codes and puzzles that students have to solve.
♦ Reading comprehension activities that include literary elements practice.
♦ A creative assignment requiring students to invent their own holiday.
♦ At-a-glance answers.
♦ Exit slips.
♦ Awards to celebrate a successful escape.
=======WHAT DO I HAVE TO SUPPLY?=======
All that is needed is a printer (color optional but adds a nice touch), folders, crayons or colored pencils, scissors, and paper or cardstock. 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 40-50 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!
