4th & 5th Grade Thanksgiving Reading Escape Game
This escape room is the perfect review of 4th and 5th grade reading standards (theme and character traits) for Thanksgiving! Love classroom escape rooms or break outs? Escape from Emoji Turkey Farm is everything you need to complete an escape challenge that reviews your theme and character traits standards!
My escape rooms are the most fun way to review standards while encouraging team work, critical thinking, and problem solving! In this classroom escape, students will compete as teams to escape Emoji Turkey Farm! Best yet, it takes only 15-20 minutes to prep and needs no locks or expensive materials.
This team escape challenge is great for teams of 4-6 students, up to 8 teams. The best thing is, you don't have to prepare envelopes for every single team. This activity was created to be much easier to prep than the traditional class escape challenge. You will use far less paper and far fewer envelopes than other challenges.
5 large manila folders (total)
1 letter envelope (total)

Markers or dab and dot paints (paints optional)
Scenario: You and your classmates are exploring a turkey farm for a science assignment you’re working on when a bright flash occurs. You rub your eyes, and as your vision clears up, you notice something extremely strange has happened. The turkeys all appear to be a turkey-emoji hybrid. And they can now talk! One of the turkey emojis approaches your class and tells you that his name is Cool Turkey, and he is in charge now. Your class finds out that you will now be working for the emoji turkeys on the farm. Cool Turkey tells you there is ! You beg him to let you go home. Cool Turkey thinks for a while, then he tells you that he’ll make your class a deal. He will set up a series of challenges, and the group that correctly completes all of the challenges will be allowed to go home. The rest of the class will be stuck working on the emoji turkey farm FOREVER!
Estimated time for this escape: 60-90 minutes.
During this game, they will review:
- Internal & External Character Traits
- Critical thinking & teamwork

I also provide something very important for a group review game: individual student booklets to keep ALL students accountable. These are called escape logs in the game.
I've even provided a way to prevent one student from doing all of the work. Directions and special cards are included in the game to help manage it so that all students are competing equal work and successfully working together!
Don't bore your students with worksheets to check for understanding - let them ESCAPE EMOJI TURKEY FARM!
