I’m back with a brand new escape the classroom game pack! (As I said I will be sharing a new game EVERY MONTH).
This game is about The Magic Rain Book Episode 2. So if you haven’t seen the first episode and didn’t play it with your students no worries, as it is a reading comprehension activity game all the questions are related to the second episode. Kids don’t need to know about the first episode to finish the game but still, it would be more effective to finish the first one before the second as there is a very nice story that you wouldn’t want to miss and it doesn’t make sense to start from the middle of the story, either 🙂
You can click here and visit the Escape the Classroom Game Pack Freebie no.1 blog post to download the Magic Rain Book Episode 1 game pack and play it with your students.
Anyways, if you are new to this topic you can visit my first blog post about educational escape the classroom games and learn more about escape rooms, where they come from, why and how I create such games…
So, I wanted to share one of the Breakout Edu games I have prepared for our 3rd graders (CEFR A1 Level – CYL Movers – Gese 3)
This game is based on a READING activity. It’s a reading comprehension pack. You will see how many questions kids will have to answer But they will not complain as it is a game :))
I have used an article from Richmond Publishing’s course book Thumbs Up 3 (Unit 2 – Reading Text – The Magic Rain Book Episode 2)
Here is the Article:
Here is how the game pack looks like:
How to Play:
- You need 30-40 minutes.
- Download the Article and the Game Pack pdf files. They are both ready to print. So just print them out (My advice: Don’t print them double sided as it will be harder to read and follow the sections).
- Group your students. (2-4 ideally)
- Give them mobile phones or tablets or i Pads which have QR Code Reader apps downloaded. (It is easier if the devices have QR Code reader apps in them but if they don’t that’s not a problem as there is also a web link they can reach the game).
- Put all the papers (Article + Game Pack) in a big envelope (this is optional of course you can just hand the files to your students or even find a more creative way to give the papers 🙂
- Important Detail: In the pack, there are 1 separate page with password tickets. This page is for the teacher. Do not give them to your students. During the game at some sections kids will have to answer some questions so that they can get password tickets directly from you.
Before playing the game I suggest you to scan the code and reach the game and play it yourself (or just have a look) to foresee what your students may ask you during the game.
This is what I say to my students: “Whatever you need is in the envelope! Open it and find the “QR Code” page. When you scan it, you will reach the game. Answer the questions to find your CODES. You will need those codes to open the sections and finish the game. Good luck! 🙂

Hi Yasemin, I found your site while searching for escape rooms. I’m a librarian with Montgomery County public libraries in Maryland. Your work is absolutely amazing! I would like to know if I could use some of your games during our programs for kids, and of course would require downloading sheets/stories, etc. I think our patrons would love these!
Thank you for your work. They must take so much time and effort on your part but are so helpful for educators!
Hi Tina, thank you so much for your motivating message <3 it's a pleasure to meet you! It would be great if you use these games. Whatever you need, any suggestions, anything you wanna ask, I would be happy to contribute. If you have any book, article, passage or reader that you think we can turn into a game like this, please let me know - I would try to create one for you ^_^
