Reading Comprehension Escape Room Bundle – 2nd & 3rd Grade
⭐ This 2nd and 3rd grade reading comprehension escape room bundle is a truly immersive experience. Each escape room focuses on different reading comprehension skills. Students navigate their way through various adventures while reviewing key reading comprehension skills. Students embark on various journeys like a mission to space, or finding wild animals on a jungle safari, or learning magic to defeat an evil sorcerer and graduate wizard school. In each escape room, students complete various challenges. Each challenge requires students to use fundamental standards-based reading comprehension skills. Students add their answers to the Secret Decoder Tool to help them unlock the secret codes and complete each challenge. Students earn items as they complete the mission and earn official completion certificates.
⭐These resources come with both digital Google Slides and printable versions, so it’s perfect for classroom and distance learning. In the digital version, the Secret Decoder is a Google Sheet that self-corrects and tells each student when they can continue to the next challenge. Printable versions have a recording booklet and paper decoder that allows students to keep their answers and decipher the codes.
⭐ Integrated videos, thematic items, and exciting storylines come together to engage students while developing and enforcing key reading comprehension skills.
*Please note: This does include embedded videos that are hosted via YouTube. Please ensure you and your students have access to YouTube.
