An Escape Room activity looking at the Lewis & Clark Expedition across the United States. Ideal for fifth grade or sixth grade, the activity is perfect for group work, team-building activities or for a fun, engaging and interactive lesson. The activity can be used in English class as it incorporates some ELA skills or in Social Studies.

The activity has been split into four different tasks; your students will need to complete each of the tasks to reveal a word. Together the four words make a phrase for them to escape the room.

Included in this resource:

  • Student guidelines for completing the tasks meaning no teacher prep
  • A student answer key to complete as they work through the tasks
  • An informational text or reading comprehension passage
  • A true or false fact sheet & maze
  • A crossword puzzle
  • A timeline activity & answer key
  • A wordsearch puzzle
  • Teacher answer sheets for each task


In Task 1 students will read an informational text about the Lewis & Clark Expedition and then find their way through a maze by answering true or false comprehension questions. If they answer the questions correctly they will reveal their first word.

In Task 2 students will use the same informational text to complete a crossword puzzle. Within the puzzle there are several hidden letters which will need to be unscrambled on the completion of the puzzle to reveal the second word.

In Task 3 students will have to cut out 27 timeline task cards that cover key events of the 1800s before putting them in order from the earliest date to the most recent. When they have finished their task they can glue them onto the answer key which will reveal their third word.

In Task 4 students will have to find the missing words in a wordsearch puzzle before finding a hidden word from the letters that are left over in the puzzle. This hidden word is their fourth and final word.

Students can then complete their student answer key with the four words they revealed before checking with the teacher to see if they have escaped successfully.
