Take the stress out of planning a Christmas Party or winter celebration that is magical and educational with these Winter Escape Room activities! This will be a winter your students never forget!
Set the stage with a note from the hot chocolate stand worker:
As we sat down,
For a cozy treat,
We discovered something,
Not so sweet.
The cocoa was missing.
It all disappeared.
Who could have taken it?
A critter we feared.
Complete each challenge,
To receive a clue.
Read each one,
And find out who!
After the students complete each challenge, they will receive a clue from the culprit. A suspect will be eliminated after each challenge. Once all of the winter centers have been completed, they will have eliminated all but one suspect!
