Description

The Thanksgiving escape room is an immersive experience for your middle school students. It allows them to demonstrate their knowledge of logic puzzles, parasitism, mutualism, commensalism, atomic mass, biotic and abiotic factors, and metric conversions If you have not covered these concepts, we have included help cards with each of the puzzles.

A Unique Escape Room Experience:

Unlike many escape rooms, the teacher is in total control on which of the 8 puzzles they want to use and in which order to use them. Each puzzle is independent of the others. This is great for shorter or longer class periods.

This particular escape room is editable to meet the needs of your classroom policies.

The Challenge:

It’s almost Thanksgiving and there are so many things to be thankful for. Unfortunately, one grouchy teacher in your school has decided that Thanksgiving break is going to have to wait. She is concerned that all that pie and turkey will turn your brains to mashed potatoes. Can you prove to this teacher that your brains are plenty strong and that a little cranberry sauce isn’t going to hurt?

She says she’ll happily let everyone go home if you can show her that your thinking caps are in tip-top shape. Solve these riddles and puzzles and show her that your heads aren’t full of gravy! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Watch the video preview above.

What Materials Will I Need?

The escape room can be run in several different ways. The cheapest and easiest method is to use manila envelopes for the puzzles (all directions provided).

For a more authentic escape room each group will need the following:

  • One Lockout Hasp
  • 2, 3-digit locks
  • 1, 4-digit lock
  • One storage box that includes a place for the lockout hasp

Both methods will need the following:

  • All printed materials from the puzzles chosen
  • Manila envelopes (used for each of the puzzles)

Two Options for Online Use

You can assign the “Single Student Digital Version” PowerPoint through email or your school's learning management system. This file has no answers and students solve by reading and answering questions or manipulating images on the slide.

This version can also be uploaded to Google Drive and opened with Google Slides.

  • Open Google Slides.
  • Go to the File menu and choose Open
