Are you ready to be the most memorable 1st grade teacher of a child's life? Use these 9 Escape Rooms to guarantee student engagement while they learn and solve a classroom mystery.

What's inside this download?
Get 9 ESCAPE ROOM Mysteries focusing on sight words, comprehension, numbers, alphabet, Veterans Day, Halloween, ice breakers, word building and addition for a low price. The Escape Rooms range from pre-k to 3rd grade, but all of these hit 1st grade benchmarks. So, I am ONLY recommending them for 1st Grade Teachers. If you are a K teacher who has high students, these will work for you.
What does an escape room look like for primary students?
You will have to spend about 40 minutes to prep your materials. Students will be separated into two groups. (Except for the Literacy Night Dinosaur Escape Room. This one can be done whole group, individually, edited to fit your student's needs. There is not a video for this one as a hook.) First students watch the YouTube video as a hook. Then, students are handed a mystery envelope with a clue. The clue might have them find letters to build sentences, solve puzzles, or solve a riddle. (Each escape room is different.) Each time they complete a challenge, they get another mystery envelope. Eventually, they will discover keys that will open a box. (The keys are paper. The box can be an old paper box filled with a treat or homework pass that you will open together once each group has their key.) Once the box is open, the student can escape the room to recess or the library. Certificates are provided for students who are Master Mystery Problem Solvers. The activity takes about 45 minutes to complete.
(NO LOCKS OR FANCY TREASURE BOXES necessary)
Every Escape Room has a Youtube LINK to create a "HOOK" for your students!
