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 Poe's The Pit & the Pendulum 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 Pit & the Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe. Planning an escape room may seem like quite the daunting task, 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. 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 Inquisitor's dungeon of gloom and doom by solving 5 different puzzles, discovering a hidden message, and finding clues along the way.

In the first task, students must order scrambled plot points from The Pit & the Pendulum and place them in the correct spot on Freytag's Pyramid. Highlighted boxes will reveal the code.

In the second task, students must identify 8 types of figurative language within the story. Highlighted boxes in the correct answers will reveal the code.

In the third task, students must solve a colorful jig saw puzzle that when intact, displays an important quote from the story.

In the fourth task, students must answer challenging multiple choice questions about The Pit & the Pendulum that when correct, will reveal the code.

In the fifth and final task, students must discover the hidden message (a quote from The Pit & the Pendulum) using clues from the first four tasks.
