What educators are saying

My students found the activity challenging, yet engaging. They worked in teams and were competitive with one another to see who would finish first.


Engage your students with this editable, digital breakout using Google Forms! 


"You and a team of archeologists have just discovered a long lost ancient tomb! As you begin exploring the treasures and artifacts, you find some modern items that don’t belong. You quickly realize that you aren’t the first to discover the tomb after all. It was discovered 100 years ago by a man named R. Morley, but he never made it out alive! As you are rummaging through the remnants of his bag, the tomb door suddenly closes behind you. You are trapped inside the pitch-black tomb and cannot see anything! You have 60 minutes to find your way around, discover the secrets of the tomb, and escape before you and your team are laid to rest!"


Each of my digital breakouts includes a link to the Google form, a reference sheet, instructions, and an answer sheet for the teacher. PLEASE NOTE: The Google form is editable. The reference sheet is not. Each student will need a copy of the reference sheet. This sheet will contain important information needed to complete the activities. Students may also need to write on the paper to solve puzzles or complete certain tasks. The reference sheet provides a hands-on component that students love! 

This activity is meant to be used as an introduction or a wrap-up to the topic. It is not heavy on material. Students will still learn about the topic, but it does not require students to do extensive outside research or reading. Students will be engaged through solving puzzles, ciphers, completing activities, and using critical thinking skills related to the theme.

This type of digital breakout is fun and engaging for a large range of grades, roughly 4th through high school! Please note, it will be challenging for the younger grades. Remember, the form is editable to fit the needs of your students. You may add hints if your students need more guidance. Additionally, if you feel that I have given too many hints, feel free to edit those out to make it more challenging. 

This digital breakout is designed to take 40-60 minutes. I give my students 60 minutes so that more of them experience the thrill of escaping!

You will need:
- Chromebook, laptop, or iPad for EACH student (recommended). It can also be done with 1 device for every group of 3-5 students. However, for students to get the best experience, it is recommended that they each have access to their own devices.

- Internet access

- Copier (to photocopy reference sheet - front and back - for each student)

- A free Google account
