This Back to School Escape Room is designed specifically for middle school! There are even FOUR possible solutions, so you won't have to worry about "leaked" info. if you have multiple classes!
The escape room adventure begins when YOU- the most awesome teacher in the history of the world- plan a back to school field trip! Your goal is to work on team building and following directions while your kids learn about sailing an old ship, but things go amiss when a certain sea god gets involved. In order to break out and rescue the entire class from the dreaded doldrums, your students must work with their group to solve a series of FUN challenges based on comprehension and steeped with a variety of skills!
Using critical thinking, problem-solving, and reading comprehension, kids will have to follow directions carefully. They will complete a series of activities on GROWTH MINDSET, STUDY SKILLS, and CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS. Each challenge brings kids closer to exactly what they need to escape.
⭐This resource is included in this bundle at great savings!⭐
