Are you looking for a completely paperless and totally engaging activity before winter break? This Polar Express Escape Room will take your students on a great adventure as they answer questions about the book and complete challenges to unlock digital codes.
They will need to hurry! The train is boarding and they've lost their ticket. Can they work hard to find their ticket and make it home before Christmas? Let's find out!!
If you are familiar with Breakout EDU, this is a digital escape room that is completely PAPERLESS!
4 things to love about this Google Form Escape Room:
1. NO-PREP! There is nothing to print, cut, laminate, clues to hide, or locks to set. Everything is ready for your students right in the form! They DON'T have to have two different tabs open with a site/form/etc.
2. This digital escape room can be used with computers, chrome books, OR iPads. Students only need one device per group/pair!
3. **NEW: If this is your first experience with Google Forms or an escape room, you'll love that your purchase includes a link to an 8 minute Youtube video of ME answering any questions you may have and walking you through the whole escape room!!
3. Students do NOT need a google login. You can assign the escape room via Google Classroom, SeeSaw or any other similar class site your students access, OR there is a QR code provided for your students to access it on their devices.
Students reflect on the book and use reading comprehension skills, as well as critical thinking skills to solve the puzzles and unlock the codes. There are clues to help them unlock each section of the Google Form to try to find the Polar Express ticket they lost. Once they successfully find their ticket and are able to board the train, they will see a fun congratulations message!
What is included in this unique POLAR EXPRESS DIGITAL ESCAPE ROOM for students:
-Similes/Metaphors (fun video and info slide included in the form to help them if you haven't taught this skill yet)
-using context clues to choose the best meaning of key vocabulary words
-Finding evidence in the a non-fiction text about the North Pole
NOTE: The form is NOT editable and there is no need to view the results because students MUST get the answer/code correct before advancing to the next section (UNLIKE a quiz or survey form). It uses the answer validation tool.
If you're worried your students will run out of time and you want to continue another class period, just have them keep track of their codes/answers on a piece of paper. There is not a way to save progress in the form, but your kids can re-type those codes in the next day before continuing where they left off.
