Are you looking for a fun way to review soil? This Soil Activity – Escape Room has everything you need! Whether teaching remotely or in-person, this classroom escape room is easy to set up and students will have lots of fun reviewing the importance and components of soil!

In this Soil Activity students find themselves trapped! The only way to escape is for students to successfully complete six challenges that require them to use critical thinking skills as they review science concepts.

What will students learn with this classroom escape room?

Using these escape room activities, students will review important concepts about soil. Topics covered:

  • Explain the importance of soil to an ecosystem.
  • Explain how soil supports plants and animals.
  • Describe the components of soil including rock, clay, silt, sand, humus, air, and water.

What escape room activities are included?

When completing the activities, students will use critical thinking and inference skills. Challenges include activities such as:

  • Match important terms to their definitions.
  • Identify true facts about soil and calculate numbers related to those facts to create a code.
  • Sort information about clay, silt, sand, and humus to create a code.
  • Read a story about the importance of soil and use a key to decode hidden information within the story.
  • Use clues and riddles to determine what component of soil is being described.
  • Use a key to decode terms related to soil.

Is a digital version included?

This resource includes two versions of the same escape room. The first version is a PDF escape room that can be completed in a classroom. I like to create centers with each activity and allow students to rotate through the centers. Additional suggestions for how to set up and use the escape room in the classroom are provided with the resource.

The second version is a digital escape room that can be completed in Google Forms. The digital escape room is self-checking so that students can review the answers to their work even when learning remotely.

What standards are covered?

This Soil Activity – Escape Room is specifically aligned with the 2018 Virginia SOL 3.6 but also covers most standards related to the importance and components of soil.
