This Harry Potter themed escape room is based on Harry’s third year at the Hogwart’s, the Prisoner of Azkaban book. It is recommended for grades 4-6.
There are five puzzles in this escape room that you need to decipher a secret phrase at the end to win.
Puzzle #1 Spells Matching Game~ In this puzzle students need to match the spells to the correct definition or purpose. When they have it correct, they will get a set of letters to start deciphering the secret phrase.
Puzzle #2 Arithmancy~ In this puzzle, students will need to decipher their social, heart and character numbers. These will then be converted to letters.
Puzzle #3 Character/Plot Puzzle~ In this activity, kids are given 9 cards with character names and plot details to match up.
Puzzle #4 Herbology~ This puzzle has students read an article on magical plants and answer questions about them correctly.
Puzzle #5 Close Reading and Literary Analysis~ Students will read an excerpt from the book and answer comprehension questions focused on comprehension, literary analysis and vocabulary. (Must have the book to complete this section!)
For each of the puzzles, kids will be given a set of letters to unscramble leading them to the final secret phrase to solve! The first person or team to solve the scrambled words wins!
