Argument Writing Escape Room Lock Box Game
*You must have at least one breakout box kit to play this game.
**If you do not have a breakout box kit, you can use the Google form in place of locks. Simply project the slide with the QR code and bit.ly link to share the Google form with the students. They will need at least one device per group to access the Google form, but they do not need Google accounts. The first two answers must be shown to the teacher in order to receive additional clues. The last three answers are self-checking. Students who complete the Google form correctly will receive a congratulations message.
