Escape From Pete’s Pumpkin Patch – Halloween Activity

Oh no! 

Your class field trip to Pete’s Pumpkin Patch has turned into a life or pumpkin situation. The terrible witch who haunts the patch has trapped you and your classmates inside the gates and plans on turning you into pumpkins. Unless you can escape!

Practice Parts of Speech with a Halloween Escape Room!

This escape room makes for an ideal rainy day activity, fun Halloween activity, and even a review of nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Divide students into pairs or teams and provide each with a guidebook. Each guidebook contains four challenges that reveal numbers, symbols, and codes to help your students determine the correct number sequence to unlock the gates.

Scaffolding + Extension Tips 

Scaffold the activity for your students by

  • Reading the introduction and discussing the mission prior to beginning.
  • Put students in teams of 3-4 students, ensuring that you have a stronger reader in the mix to assist with reading.
  • Allow students to use a Parts of Speech anchor chart as a reference during the game.

Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students
