These escape the room style *breakout* activities are extremely engaging. They require students to collaborate, problem solve, and think critically while utilizing their content knowledge. Not to mention, they are a great way to reinforce the importance of reading directions carefully!
I have adapted the normal breakout/escape the room challenges to be EXTREMELY low prep! Essentially all you have to do is print the resources and go! It is also a great way to see who has mastered certain skills and who requires further guidance. The kids won't even know you're assessing them- they'll be too busy having fun working through the challenges :)
Each individual breakout challenge focuses on one literature standard. However, it incorporates other standards as noted in each challenge description. For each breakout, I provide my students 40-45 minutes to solve each of the five challenges before time runs out! However, you can always modify the time to fit your students' needs.
