If you’ve been refreshing students’ memories on the eight parts of speech this back-to-school season, this Halloween escape room will be just what you need to put students’ knowledge to the test.

► What Parts of Speech Review Activities are Included?

  • Identify it! – Students will identify the part of speech for a given word within a sentence.
  • Sort it! – Students will read a stack of words and determine what part of speech they are.
  • Map it! – Students will identify what part of speech is missing from a sentence in order to work their way through a maze.
  • Find the Imposter! Students will examine a stack of words and find the imposter (the one that doesn’t belong).

What grade level is this Halloween Parts of Speech Escape Room designed for?

This grammar review was designed for 6th-grade ELA.

Depending on the skill level of your students, it may be appropriate for 5th and 7th grades.

Students will need to know all eight parts of speech (nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections), as well as minor details like the difference between action, helping, and linking verbs.

Please thoroughly review the description & preview to determine its appropriateness for your students!

How does this Halloween Escape Room work?

  • The printable version requires about 15-20 minutes to print, cut, and distribute
    • I recommend setting up four stations in your classroom – one for each breakout.
    • In order to prevent students from bottlenecking at a station, I recommend providing 3-4 copies of the breakout task at each station.
  • The digital version is housed on Google Slides & Google Forms
    • I recommend spending 15 minutes working through the Google Form, completing each task yourself, before assigning it to students.

► You can use this escape room with paper only, digital only, or a combination of the two. I’ve included directions for ALL three methods!

► Your purchase will contain a PDF that includes all the necessary resources and links to access your Halloween parts of speech escape room review.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Teaching at the Summit said, “Who doesn’t love an escape room? Especially during the week of Halloween?! My students enjoyed this activity and it gave them a good break from regular classwork while still engaging their brains!”


If you assign the Google activities and your students receive an “Access Denied” error message, your district has blocked students from opening Google files owned by someone outside your district. You can solve this by making a “teacher copy” of the activities, and then embedding your document links within the Google form.
