Product Description

Engage grades 7-10 ELA students with "The Tell Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe Escape Room. Can students piece together the plot and find the Old Man's heart to avenge his killer? Find out with this escape room!

To implement this escape room, arrange students into groups of approximately four students each. Give each group a detective file and hide the five clues in designated spots around the classroom.

Your students will

  • Work to do a close reading of the text
  • Unlock the meaning of vocabulary in context
  • Answer questions to test figurative language knowledge
  • Work to piece together the plot

Directions are clear and easy to follow. Simply print, hide the clues, and watch your students fully engage in the text!

Included in this escape room:

  • 6 clues
  • "The Tell Tale Heart" full text broken into sections that align to each clue
  • Detective Badges
  • Caution banner pieces
  • Edgar Allan Poe posters to decorate your room
  • Step by step, easy to follow directions

This escape room is a blast and can be used on Halloween, as part of a short story unit, to review skills, or just for fun!
