Product Description

Get ready to have the most fun you'll have teaching with a lesson that your students will be talking about for years to come with Edgar Allan Poe's The Black Cat ESCAPE ROOM!

There is no wonder why escape rooms are so popular; they are highly engaging and encourage people to work together and think creatively in order to solve different puzzles... all while trying to beat the clock! This meticulously-crafted resource features all of the materials you need to conduct a full-length Escape Room for The Black Cat by Edgar Allan Poe. Planning an escape room may seem like quite the daunting task (and it is!), but this product provides everything from the basics and set-up instructions to signs and answer keys so that yours runs smoothly from start to finish. The activity involves movement, energy, creative thinking and most of all, collaboration. It is the perfect activity for Halloween or any day you want to shake it up with your students without sacrificing learning. Your students will be having so much fun that they won’t even realize the higher order thinking skills they are applying in the playing of this game!

How does it work?

In this escape room, students will try to escape out of the narrator's basement of horror by solving 4 different puzzles, discovering a hidden message through hidden jig saw puzzle pieces, and finding clues along the way.

  • In the first task, students must order the plot events of The Black Cat on Freytag's Pyramid. Once solved, corresponding letters reveal the first code.
  • In the second task, students must identify 7 types of figurative language within the short story. Highlighted boxes in the correct answers will reveal the code.
  • In the third task, students must solve a word maze. Letters collected along the way unscrambled will reveal the code.
  • In the fourth task, students must answer challenging multiple choice questions about The Black Cat that when correct, will reveal the code.
  • In the fifth and final task, students must discover the hidden message (a quote from The Black Cat) using puzzle pieces they collected during the first four tasks.
