EASY PREP! FUN! ENGAGING!
The holidays are a time for spreading cheer, and giving and receiving love and gifts. But, what if you couldn't make it to celebrate with your family on time? Imagine your school is SNOWED IN on the day before break is meant to begin. Can you escape to get home on time?? Students will work to solve problems and riddles to complete Winter Holidays Escape Room, and make it home for the holidays!
This Winter Holidays Escape Room is set up in 5 parts, but can go in any order: Snowy Synonyms and Chilly Compound Words (dictionary skills), Holiday Haiku (poetry writing), Grammar Gifts (subjects, predicates, and prepositions), Holidays Around the World Research (mini-research and mini-poster), Candy Cane Equations (multiplication and division to solve for n—basic facts only).
Prep, set-up, and completing this Winter Holidays Escape Room is simple! Allow for 1.5-2 hours total. Students will complete each part, show you their answer key or product, solve a riddle, and then get a code card. At the end, they will unscramble their code cards to solve a final riddle. Then, students can “unlock” the code! I have a reward box students will reach in for a prize (reward coupons, pencils, candy, erasers, etc). Parts can be manipulated/cut to fit the needs and time in your classroom (i.e. you can implement 4 parts instead of 5, or you can cut the riddles to save time, etc).
I hope you and your students have fun breaking the code to make it home for the holidays!
