Product Description

Looking for a fun, suspenseful, and engaging short story to read with your students? "Poison" by Roald Dahl is just that! Even better is this product to go along with it! My comprehension escape room for "Poison" gets students up out of their chairs and moving while tossing in a bit of competition. In my escape rooms, I have each group of students select ONE representative to be the "runner." This "runner" is in charge of looking for the clues around the room based off of the answer that the group gives them. This prevents chaos while getting everyone engaged. This product comes with step by step instructions of how to run this escape room with clear directions and an answer key. Perfect for beginners looking for a change in their classroom or escape room veterans just looking for a 20-30 min. activity to pair with a short story!

My students (especially my kinesthetic ones) loved this activity and didn't even realize that they were using their comprehension skills to get the answers! They appreciated the change of pace after reading a short story together and were asking when we would get to do another one.
