This resource is a sequential (clues lead in to each other) escape room that involves puzzles related to literary analysis, devices, and elements. It is based on a fun scenario that puts students on a mission to solve a mystery before time runs out. Students will begin with a cold read of the short story, “Hearts and Hands” by O. Henry, but it will be missing the most important last line. They will work through six tasks to find the last line and uncover the meaning of the story before time runs out!
All you need to do is print the tasks, place them around your classroom based on the teacher's directions that I provide, and you're all set for exciting activity!
Here is what's included:
