This Bundle includes 25 different Social Studies/US History, People, Growth Mindset and Holiday Escape Rooms.Once your students try one of my escape rooms, they will beg for more!
This activity is for all types of learners, especially kinesthetic.
In addition to learning or reinforcing the subject matter, my escape rooms encourage teamwork and critical thinking. As a “timed” challenge, students will be engaged from beginning to end.
Students are sent on 25 separate “secret missions” and given 25 different back stories to ignite their active learning skills. They are given a code name which makes them feel as if they are part of the secret mission. Students practice hands-on, practical problem solving skills all while learning and having fun! Your students will be inspired to think outside the box!

The Escape Rooms will take students on 25 separate secret missions around the classroom! Each escape room has students decode interesting facts about U.S. History, Civics, Test Taking, Growth Mindset or Holidays.
The Escape Rooms have students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on a secret mission! The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit lock combination based on the decoders/clues.
Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final four digit lock combination. No props needed!! Students can report the final lock combo to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all!
The best age range for this resource is 9+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes.
You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders is included.
An answer key and teacher directions are provided for each Escape Room
Time needed: 30-60 minutes per escape room
