Idiom Escape Room Activity - Idiomatic Expressions Breakout Stations Review Game: Help your students learn and show their understanding of English idioms with this highly engaging interactive escape room breakout activity! Students will circulate the classroom to visit stations and complete puzzles and challenges related to idioms! Before starting this fun review game, students should have a basic understanding of the meaning of idiom and could also benefit from some pre-teaching with idiom examples.

How The Idioms 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 idioms and idiomatic expressions. The goal of the escape room is to complete the task at each station successfully and retrieve a variety of mystery code words. 

  • Idiom Quotes: In the first station, students match up idioms in quotes by famous people to their meanings. They insert the name of the person who said the quote into the proper place in their answer booklet to reveal a mystery code word.
  • Idiom Selection: In the second station, students answer multiple-choice questions to correctly define idioms. The answers will reveal a hidden mystery code word.
  • Idiom Locator: In the third station, students read a passage and attempt to locate the idioms used to uncover a mystery word.
  • Idiom Puzzle: In the fourth station, students assemble puzzle pieces that match up idioms in sentence examples to their correct definitions. When students put the puzzle pieces in order, a mystery code word is revealed.
  • The Encryption Station: The final station has students decode an encrypted message based on hidden symbols they have to find throughout the game to reveal a quote!
