Product Description

Escape Rooms have become all the rage…and for good reason! They are highly-engaging activities that allow students to deepen their understanding of content. It’s a win-win situation for all!

This ESCAPE ROOM is designed to be used after reading the best-selling novel Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli. It assesses students’ knowledge of major story events (Task #1), characters (Task #2), vocabulary (Task #3), and theme (Task #4 with the Quote Reflection) through the use of 4 coded stations. This product also allows students to reflect on themselves as learners (Escape Room Reflection).

This Escape Room can be used after a whole class read (or read aloud), novel study, or even independent reading. The beauty of an Escape Room is that students work collaboratively to solve puzzles; however, it could be completed by individual students as well.

How It Works:

→ Station 1: Students sort through Plot Cards to determine which events actually occurred in the text and put them in plot order. Doing so will reveal a hidden code.

→ Station 2: Students match characters to distinct character descriptions to reveal a hidden code.

→ Station 3: Students match vocabulary words extracted from the text to their respective definitions in order to reveal a hidden code.

→ Station 4: Retrieving clues from the previous stations, students work to decipher a secret message related to the text.

If this is your first time implementing an Escape Room, rest assured that my goal is to make this as painless as possible! As such, I have included VERY detailed teacher guides to walk you through every step of the process.
