Looking for a fun, HOLIDAY ESCAPE ROOM style lesson to teach KINDNESS and CARING COMMUNICATION? Students will be excited to team up to help the Gingerbread Buddies solve puzzles and earn Cookie Clothing to decorate their group gingerbread cookie. While working in cooperative groups, teams will learn about being kind, and using compassion, empathy, & conflict-resolution skills to escape the cold, winter storm!

The Gingerbread Buddies are locked out of the gingerbread house and want to get warm after playing in the snow. The Gingerbread Boy said with a grin, “That’s OK, we can still get in!” The code to the lock is all we need. If we work together, we will succeed!”

Help the gingerbread buddies learn the essential components to being kind through 5 different puzzles. Use the Gumdrop Decoder to solve puzzles about recognizing feelings and using “I” Statements. Sort situations and choose empathetic responses. Use the Gumdrop Grid to decode a tool useful for caring communication. As each puzzle is solved, the group earns a piece of Cookie Clothing while learning a valuable lesson. Once the group gingerbread cookie is fully dressed, students earn the Key to Kindness Completion Certificate, along with Kindness bookmarks and bracelets, and can create their own Kindness Calendar!

***This Escape Room Lesson does require some prep work of printing, cutting, and assembling the team puzzle packets, but it is well worth seeing your students working together to accomplish helping the Gingerbread Buddies escape the winter storm!!!
