Freak the Mighty Escape Room Novel Activity is a fun and engaging way to have your students review the most important elements of Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick. Students will visit stations and complete puzzles and challenges related to the plot diagram, characterization, story elements, and vocabulary in the novel. This highly-engaging, interactive escape room for Freak the Mighty will not only be the perfect ending activity for the novel, but it will also review and check their understanding of the text.

How The Freak the Mighty Escape Room Activity Works:

Students work in small groups and move about the classroom to five different stations to complete puzzles and activities related to the novel.
  • The Plot Diagram Station: Students will order plot cards according to the plot diagram to determine a numeric code.
  • The Characterization Station: Students will match up quotes from Freak the Mighty to the characters who said them and use the information they gather to reveal a secret code word.
  • The Analysis Station: Students will complete a multiple-choice analysis assignment about story elements to reveal a mystery word.
  • The Vocabulary Station: Students will match new vocabulary words from examples in Freak the Mighty to their proper definitions (using context clues). Once they have matched them up correctly, it will reveal a mystery word.
  • The Encryption Station: Finally, students will decode an encrypted message based on hidden symbols they find throughout the Freak the Mighty escape room to reveal a quote from the novel.
Please note that students must have completed the novel before attempting the escape room. They should also have an understanding of the following: plot diagram, types of narration (first, second, and third person), types of characters (dynamic, flat, static, stock), genre, metaphor, hyperbole, simile, and onomatopoeia.
