If you've just finished reading Roald Dahl's short story, "The Landlady", there is no better way to wrap it up than with a creepy escape room! This literary elements-themed escape activity will have your students 100% challenged and engaged! Perfect for an absolute teaching home-run!

Check out the PREVIEW to see what's included!

Breakout Activities:

  • Plot Structure - Review various elements of the plot structure such as the exposition, inciting incident, and rising action. The climax is NOT included because it is totally up to the reader with this one!
  • Conflict - Review conflict in the text as well as conflict types in general.
  • Theme - Students select the most correct theme as well as three specific events in the story that help convey the theme.
  • Literary Elements - Students read an excerpt and determine if it is building a character, the setting, components of the plot, the conflict, or the theme.

Digital Google Form "breakout" and instructions for BreakoutEDU boxes are provided!

**NEW! All questions are fully EDITABLE, so you can modify them to better meet the needs of your students!**

What grade level is this best for?

I designed this resource to be used with my 6th grade Language Arts class. It can easily be used for 7th or 8th grade classrooms as well, but please use your professional discretion.

What prep is required?

The beauty of this purchase is that it is easy to print or assign & go! You only need to set up the Breakout Boxes IF you choose to use them.

If you assign the Google activities and your students receive an "Access Denied" error message, it is because your district has blocked students from opening Google files owned by someone outside your district. You can solve this by making your "teacher copy" of the activities/slides, then sharing your document links with the students.

Don't forget to leave me feedback! I love to hear what my buyers have to say, how the product worked for them, and any feedback I can use to improve my product! (It also earns you points towards future TPT Purchases)
