What educators are saying

This escape room is fun! Very thorough with little prep involved. Nice that it coordinates with the theory curriculum I already have from Band Directors Talk Shop.
Used this with my grade 7 and 8 students for when they finished their work early - they enjoyed it and found it engaging. It was definitely a quick solve for most of them though (around 15 minutes).

This Escape Room is an all-in-one lesson to review your students on basic music theory in a fun and engaging way. Simply share the google form link with students and they are ready to go! This quick activity should take 10-30 minutes depending on student's ages (4th-6th grade) and prior knowledge. Complete in small groups, individual or as a class working as one team.

*** Corresponds to our Music Theory Curriculum - Unit 1

9 puzzles including the topics like:

  • staff & clefs
  • measures & bar lines
  • lines & spaces (treble & bass clef)
  • note names (treble & bass clef)
  • ledger lines (treble & bass clef)
  • Supplemental page for ALTO clef can be printed or digitally delivered to students
  • quarter notes/rests
  • half notes/rests
  • whole notes/rests
  • eighth notes/rests
  • flags & beams
  • rhythm pyramid
  • ties

The entire activity is within a Google form (will be delivered by TPT to your Google Drive) and the students will need internet access.

Completion time should be 10-30 minutes depending on age, number of students in a team and the amount of clues (if any) that the teacher might give. This activity is also perfect for a truly beneficial lesson with a substitute teacher and can work for band, choir, orchestra or general music. (Bass & treble clef are included in the google form, alto clef is included in a supplemental sheet that can be printed/delivered digitally so violists can fully participate.)

If you are not familiar with Google Forms, please read the DIRECTIONS & HELPFUL TIPS before opening the form so you will know how to use the resource. The Directions & Helpful Tips should be in the google folder that TPT shares with you after purchase.
