Oh no! Someone has locked up all the class valentines and party treats! Now the students can't have their Valentine's Day party! Can your students use their literacy, math, and problem-solving skills to help Cupid's detectives solve the clues and figure out the combinations to the locks in order to save the class party?

This fun, easy to set up (no props needed) escape room will keep your students engaged and learning the days before or after Valentine's Day! They will love finding and figuring out the clues and lock combinations that will help save the class Valentine's Day party! It is a great way to practice and review skills while working together as a team!

I have also included a bonus activity. After students have solved all the clues and opened the locks, they can use inferencing and deductive reasoning skills to help Cupid's Detective eliminate suspects from his love bug list and figure out which one locked up the party supplies.

If you have never done an escape room with your students before, no worries! You will receive:

  • Teacher instructions for preparing (no props needed - large envelopes are optional, just print & go), setting up, and conducting the escape room
  • Table of Contents
  • Whole-Class & Small Group Instructions
  • Story Cards & Written Narrations for Each (color, black/white, & optional Google Slides versions) - sets the stage for the escape room and gets students "hooked". Print out the story cards & written narrations OR use the ink-saving digital Google Slides version (show the story slides & read the narrations from the notes section).
  • Printable Clues and Answer Sheets - puzzles, graphs, activities that review skills
  • Instructions for Each Clue
  • Printable Answer Keys
  • Bonus Activity: List of Love Bug Suspects - students will use inferencing and deductive reasoning skills to eliminate love bug suspects until only one remains
  • Reward Certificates (color and black/white) - special "Cupid's Star Problem-Solver" certificates "signed by Cupid"
