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 parts of speech. The parts of speech used in this game include: noun, pronoun, verb, adverb, adjective, preposition, and conjunction. Students will be multiplying multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
**You will need a small hand mirror to play this game.
This is an interactive game where the students are timed. They are trying to escape a haunted house that is filled with Halloween monsters. Students must solve a string of questions and clues, as well as decode different ciphers, to escape. If your class has never played an escape game before, I suggest playing this as a whole class. However, materials are provided for up to 6 different groups to play at one time.
**Versions with and without QR codes included!
Students try and solve clues and questions to breakout and escape the classroom. You, the teacher, can decide how much time your students have to complete the task. I suggest 45 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.
Very fun activity, a lot ot set up.

A great activity for our fall celebration! Students enjoyed the challenge, however I would recommend running more than one at a time to engage all students.

My students had a lot of fun figuring out this escape room. It was a little confusing to set up and reset for each class, but the content is great.
Perfect! Just what I was looking for!

Engaging way to review
Rhonda C. –
The materials were very nice but unfortunately, this was just too complicated for my 4th grade students. Not one group was able to solve. Very complicated for 4th graders.

So much fun!
Arch City Teaching –
This was such a fun activity! Thanks for sharing your creativity!
Anna R. –
Fun activity for antsy kids right before Halloween!
This was the first one I bought and it ended up being such a success that I bought 4 more! Since I have a pretty high functioning group this year, they had no trouble following the clues. With a lower group, I would probably do as the seller suggest and do it as a whole class. Amazing resource!
Monica Brown –
A fun and engaging activity to review parts of speech!
Amy Nix –
My kids were really challenged not only to answer the questions, but to follow the directions without assistance. I’ll definitely plan on using it every year!
Myrriah K. –
This was fun!
Kate D. –
My students loved this activity! We started doing more escape room activities because they were so interested!
Robin K. –
Nice product. Kids enjoyed. Will buy more from this seller

Very thorough and engaging product, but it was too complicated for most of my 4th graders. She recommended doing it whole class first-definitely do that!

Carole B. –
My students loved this! Thanks
Mary C. –
I wish it was not so difficult to put together, but it was still fun to complete.
Sheryl M. –
This was fantastic! It was great even for things I hadn’t quite delved into like pronouns and prepositions so it was a great time to chat about those and the kids keep referring back to them!
I can’t wait to use this resource in my classroom.
The Teacher’s Desk 6 –
Fun way to practice a ho hum skill!
Learning with Miss LaGrow –
Engaging as always!
Kristi H. –
This will be a great activity. I will need to allow more time to get it set up though, so I will do it next year. It looks like a fun activity that I am excited to do.
Patricia E. –
I really was hoping you would have a holiday bundle, I love your cracking the classroom sets!
Elizabeth Allen –
This is a great activity. I look forward to purchasing more of these. I did as suggested and did it as a whole class for the first time and it was a bust. I know, however, it will be much more well-received when done in smaller groups.
Nancy M. –
My students loved this and can’t wait to try another one!
Sara Hollis –
Jessica Walker –
Purchased, but haven’t used yet. There is a lot to prep, but I know my students will enjoy this next year!
Students loved it!
Elisabeth N. –
There was a lot of prep work, but it was well worth it. My students LOVED this and didn’t even realize they were working and learning!
Wendy Gilbert –
This is a well-thought-out activity. The directions were so easy to follow (although they were long). This is the second one that I attempted with my gifted third graders. It took a LONG time to complete. The clues are long, and my students had a hard time with the stamina to stick with a clue through to the end. All in all, a good activity, but I’d probably stick with using it with older kiddos OR whole class.
Teach Like A Pineapple –
The directions and time put into this… wow! It’s amazing. However, it was overwhelming to read and try to figure out on my own. It would be amazing if there was a video (?) or something similar to see how to prepare the pieces and then the activity.
Suzanne M. –
I love it!
Brittney P. –
This is a very intense and wonderful activity for students to do!
4th Grade Frills –
My student loved this activity and keep asking for more! Thank you
Up and Away in 5th Grade –
Overall this product was so detailed and relatively easy to set up. This was very involved activity and my students were unable to finish it due to confusion. I love Escape Rooms and believe they can build a sense of team work in the classroom. However, I recommend first doing this activity as a class with your students so they understand how to do Escape Rooms.
Jennifer C. –
These are ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! It teaches teamwork, they learn as they are having fun (which is hard to do with activities like this but they do). I am buying all of them for 4th grade!
Being Fearless in 5th –
So awesome! Thank you!

This was a very complicated activity to put together. There are a lot of directions to follow for each step, it was very difficult for my 5th graders to complete. They still had fun.

Will be doing this and zombie math for Halloween activities. When I gave the students a choice over Halloween themed activities 60% of them choose to do these!

Oodles of Goodies –
The instructions are step by step and easy to follow. There is some prep that must be put into the activity, but it is worth it. I personally laminate these escape games to use year after year. My students love when we play a new one. This is a FANTASTIC resource! All of the Cracking the Classroom Codes are a must buy!
Angela G. –
I’m so excited to use this resource!
Kate A. –
The prep work for this looks overwhelming–but definitely in a good way, because for someone like me who often needs that little extra hand-holding, the directions were so clear and well-explained that I doubt I’ll have any confusion about how to put this together. Can’t wait to try this out!
Helen Jo Morse –
I love these!
Elementary Teacher’s Pet –
I can’t wait to play this with my kiddos!
