EASY PREP, ENGAGING, AND FUN!!
While we all enjoy the company of our friends and family on Thanksgiving, there comes a time when it must end! When we are done enjoying the conversation, the warm fire, the delicious food, and incredible desserts, we all have to leave for some reason or another. Maybe it’s Black Friday shopping, or going to see a movie as a family, or just get home for time off from school?! You set the stage for your students as they work to solve problems and riddles to complete Thanksgiving Day Escape Room.
This Escape Room is set up in 5 parts, but can go in any order: Thanksgiving Day Vocabulary (students use dictionary skills to alphabetize and define 8 terms), Thanksgiving Day Grammar (in 4 parts—do one or all four: positive, comparative, superlative adjectives, verb tenses, plural nouns, and noun/verb identification within sentences), Thanksgiving Day Research (conduct short research on Thanksgiving to create a mini-poster), Thanksgiving Day Collage (multimedia collage using Google or Publisher), and Thanksgiving Day Math Problems (12 mixed problems in all: multiplying whole numbers, time, adding fractions, multiplying fractions, adding whole numbers).
Prep, set-up, and completing this Thanksgiving Escape Room is simple! Allow for 1.5-2 hours total. Students will complete each part, show you their answer key, solve a riddle, and then get a code card. At the end, they will unscramble their code cards to solve a final riddle. Then, students can “unlock” the code! I have a reward box students will reach in for a prize (reward coupons, pencils, candy, erasers, etc). Parts can be manipulated/cut to fit the needs and time in your classroom (i.e. you can implement 4 parts instead of 5, or you can cut the riddles to save time).
