“Play is the work of childhood’’ according to Jean Piaget.
Escape rooms are adventurous themed games in which teams of individuals are locked inside a themed room to solve puzzles and complete missions within a short time. These games have attracted strong worldwide interest among parents, children, and educators.
The Escape Room Alien Attack – Escape from School is an e-book with innovative activities that are in line with the learning objectives of the elementary education curriculum and can be used by students of all grades.
Children aged 8 to 10 must employ their executive functions to escape from the room after the alien cyberattack against their school. This game is a useful educational tool not only for teachers but also for parents who wish to organize, for example, a party for their children.
Proposed by Muriel Lezak in 1982, the term “executive functions’’ includes the abilities to create, preserve, monitor, and achieve a one-goal action plan. All these “survival skills’’, such as cognitive flexibility, inhibition, monitoring, planning, working memory, decision making, and problem-solving, are cultivated in an entertaining and playful way in this book.
You will find:
guidance for students,
detailed implementation, fully documented instructions, and tips for teachers,
description of a theoretical framework for inclusion in the teaching practice,
a useful list with the necessary accompanying equipment (padlocks, boxes, etc.), and
alternative ways of playing this game, depending on the school conditions (number of participants, indoor or outdoor space, etc.)
