Christmas Escape Room Activity - The Reindeer Games Holiday Breakout Challenge - Use this Christmas escape room-style activity to help foster classroom community and improve team-building and problem-solving skills during the holiday season. Students love the challenge of an escape room and this is perfect to use that last week before the holidays when students have lots of energy. 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!

This is included in our popular holiday bundle:

How The Reindeer Games Christmas Escape Room Works:
  • Students watch a video that introduces the reindeer games back story. Then, 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 challenges. This is not just a competition, it 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 use a response booklet to record their answers to the puzzles/riddles as they circulate the room to different stations.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My students LOVED this Christmas Escape Room! The ending was the best. Getting middle schoolers to laugh is a feat in and of itself! Thank you

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was a great escape room! I've used it for a few years now and the kids really love it. I've moved down to junior and I think I might be too challenging for them. Definitely will save and use again if possible.
