Can your students solve the SEL puzzles to escape the bad day? Try this escape room game with your 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade students to review SEL concepts today! This is a fun breakout activity to add to your social emotional learning curriculum!
Tired of spending hours creating fun and interactive lessons for your students? Look no further! I have just the game for you. This escape room will:
Save you time, because I planned and organized it for you.
Help your students review key SEL concepts in a fun and engaging way.
Provide your students with collaborative learning and team building opportunities.
Give you the opportunity to reach even your most reluctant learners. Students won’t even realize they are learning, because they will be too involved in the game.
This is an interactive game where the students are timed. They are trying to escape a cursed bad day. Students must solve a string of questions and clues, as well as decode different ciphers, to escape. Materials are provided for up to 6 different groups to play at one time.
**Versions with and without QR codes included!
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 and file folders.
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.
