CHRISTMAS DIGITAL ESCAPE ROOM ACTIVITY: THE REINDEER GAMES
Use this digital Christmas escape room style activity to help foster classroom community and improve team-building and problem solving skills during the holiday season. It can be used in English class as it incorporates some ELA skills, but can also easily work for any other subject! The best part is that your purchase comes with a hand-drawn video, created by the talented John Spencer, that introduces the reindeer games and tells the back story to hook students in!
HOW IT WORKS
Students watch a video that introduces the reindeer games back story. Students receive a letter inviting them to the annual Reindeer Games in the North Pole. They will compete in physical, problem-solving, and linguistic skills. This is not just a competition; this is also a job interview! The winning group gets to be the next team of reindeer trainers! Because Santa is such a grammar nerd, students will also have to complete some ELA related tasks to win :). Students should have a basic understanding of parts of speech as well as figurative language (simile, metaphor, hyperbole, personification, alliteration, pun, oxymoron, onomatopoeia, idiom).
Students record their answers to the puzzles/riddles on response slides.
This is a digital resource and students complete all the work on the computer. This works well with distance learning, 1:1 classrooms, remote teaching, Google Classroom, or online education.
