Poetry Digital Escape Room
This Poetry Digital Escape Room provides students with the opportunity to work independently or with their peers to solve 10 poetry-themed challenges.
Students must solve the required challenges to “escape” the poetry museum storage room they accidentally got locked in. Participants will use their previous poetry knowledge as well as learn new things about this poetry while reinforcing their literacy skills. Students need to know what simile, metaphor and hyperbole are for this escape room.
This is a perfect activity to help build community and engage students in social-emotional learning for 6th, 7th or 8th grade. This digital escape room should take your students about 30 – 60 minutes to complete from start to finish. Times will vary depending on the students.
- Once this Poetry Digital Escape Room is purchased, the teacher will get access to a Google Form link that is 100% editable and customizable for your classroom needs.
- No prep is required from the teacher or students – all that is needed is a teacher Google Drive account. Students can use Google Forms without having a Google account.

Poetry Digital Escape Room – Teacher Feedback:
- “Fantastic and fun for students to participate in.”
- “My students were so excited to try this. The challenges were at the exact right level to keep them interested and engaged, though nobody finished within the suggested time of 30 minutes. When I told them we were out of time (it was recess), they asked if we could skip recess to keep working on the challenges. Thank you for this!”
- “Perfect way to finish up my poetry unit. Pairs well with or without the poetry unit from this seller. My students loved this! Challenging enough to hold their attention but not overly challenging as to overwhelm them. Great resource!”
