Will your class escape in time? Try this escape room style game with your students today! This is a fun game that is perfect for reviewing the spelling pattern CVCe. This game focuses on the vowels A, I, O , and U. This game is intended for lower elementary grades. I would highly suggest this game to be played as a whole class.
The spelling patterns you will see are:
Students are lost in a dark cave. Their flashlight is about to run out of battery power. To escape, they must solve a string of questions and clues, as well as decode different ciphers. If your class has never played an escape style game before, I HIGHLY suggest playing this as a whole class.
**Versions with and without QR codes included!
This is an interactive game where the students are timed. Students try and solve clues and questions to escape the classroom. The teacher can decide how much time your students have to complete the task. I suggest 45-60 minutes, but it is up to your discretion. You can project a timer for your class, or put one somewhere for all the students to see, so they can keep track of how much time they have left to complete their task.
This is similar to a scavenger hunt where students will be moving around the room, looking for clues to unlock their envelopes (I have included riddles and suggestions on where to hide each clue). A paper is provided so students can write their work down. For many of the questions, students must have an answer that matches one on an envelope. If the answers do not match, they can’t open or “unlock” the envelope, and must rework the question.
*Everything is included, however teachers must provide their own envelopes.
I give step by step instructions on how to set up the game, including pictures! This is sure to capture the attention of your students.
