Get ready to dive into an exciting escape-room style adventure with this break-out game designed to challenge your yearbook or journalism students for Halloween! From the most reluctant staffer to the most advanced, all of your students will be 100% engaged in solving the clues in this interactive lock box game, which is perfect for team building. Plus, you'll be on the cutting edge with this educational teaching trend that will be exciting and purposeful in classrooms for years to come!
In this mini escape game with a flexible three-ways-to-play format, students will race against the clock to solve the mystery of the abandoned house and escape in time! Throughout the game, students will be challenged on their knowledge of photography, headline and story writing, and grammar and editing. All the while, they will be trying to figure out who is playing a trick on them for Halloween!
Your students will love the exciting, modern game-like format. You will love that your students are building their teamwork skills. Your admin will love to see that you're engaging all learners with higher order critical thinking and problem solving. My students were bubbling with excitement and energy the entire game!
My mini escapes are a new format to allow more teachers and students to join in on the fun. This mini escape game has three puzzles to solve rather than the traditional five, so it can be completed in half the time. That makes it perfect for classrooms who are new to escape box games, perfect for classrooms with shorter periods, and perfect for teachers who want something game-like but you don't want it to take up the entire class.
