Edgar Allan Poe Introduction Escape Room (Digital and Printable)
- Google Apps™
What educators are saying
Take students on an adventure to the House of Usher in this puzzle-filled Edgar Allan Poe escape room. They'll learn about Poe's life and work, exploring his story and his stories along the way. This is an ideal introduction to Poe before a longer unit, or functions beautifully as a stand-alone activity to give students a little Poe in their lives.
Escape rooms are notoriously COMPLEX to set up. That's why you'll find clear and concise instructions for the digital and physical versions - even a walkthrough video of the digital room so you're ready to answer student questions and give them hints. Want to see the video? Just click here!
By the end of their time in your "Escape the House of Usher" room, students will have read and/or listened to "The Raven," "The Tell-Tale Heart," and excerpts from "The House of Usher," as well as exploring Poe's home in Baltimore and learning about the events of his life there.
