This Holidays Around the World Digital Escape Game is great for in person instruction via Smart Board or virtually for Distance Learning! This could be done whole group, or in small groups as a race. This is a great review to accompany any Holidays Around the World unit. Children will travel to each country and complete each challenge to collect the souvenirs!
- Mexico Challenge: Beginning sounds
- Germany Challenge: Decoding CVC words
- Italy Challenge: Patterns
- Sweden Challenge: Sentence scramble
- India Challenge: Addition challenge
- Israel Challenge: Skip counting puzzle
As a virtual teacher this year in kindergarten, I plan to divide my students up into small teams of 4 – 5 per team during a live zoom call and use breakout rooms. Each team will be in charge of working together to solve each challenge at their own pace. (I will share my screen with each group).
Depending on the platform you use, you could also share this via Google Classroom, or each individual student to use on their own. In the classroom, each group could use a device, or you could display each challenge on the SmartBoard.
The first team to successfully collect all the souvenirs wins the game!
Note: The movable pieces will NOT work in present mode.
