Engage your students and practice literary analysis with this engaging ESCAPE ROOM for Arthur Miller's classic, "The Crucible." Put your students to the test to see if they can escape the HYSTERIA that erupted in Salem in 1692.

This sequential escape room takes students through 5 challenges. The challenges start simple, with comprehension and identification of literary devices, and gradually progress to more cognitively complex tasks involving close-reading, analysis, allegory, and theme.

There are three different options:

  • Traditional (Pencil & Paper Escape Room: No technology needed)
  • Blended (Traditional + Technology: Google form with clues automates the breakout, but the tasks are hidden around the room like in the traditional escape room)
  • Fully Digital (The Google form is all students need. This is also a great option for absent students who are making up the escape room)

Complete materials and detailed instructions for ALL methods are included.

Please be aware that both the traditional and blended escape room require some prep (reading the instructions, printing the tasks, cutting matching cards, and hiding the tasks around the room). If you don’t have prep time, the fully digital option is your best option.

This 28-page PDF product contains absolutely EVERYTHING you need:
