Looking for engaging back to school activities? This tutorial and example game will help you build a virtual Back to School Escape Room. This means your game will provide the perfect first day of school activity for YOUR students.

This Back to School Activity includes:

✅ Meet the Teacher (introduction video)

✅ Meet our classroom’s Ed Tech

✅ Syllabus Quiz

✅ Secret Code

You can use the room from the example game or insert the clues and tasks into an existing virtual classroom. You'll hide clues throughout your game to make sure players complete these tasks. This tutorial utilizes Google Slides and Google Forms and works for any subject area.

⭐️ This is a TEMPLATE. It is not a "ready to go" resource - it should be customized for your classroom. For instance, in the Example Game, the introduction video is me saying hello! ;) 

Your Back to School Escape Room templates include:

  1. Example Game
  2. Tutorial to make it your own. :)
  3. A Secret Code minigame

What other teachers are saying:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I used this in 2020 for distance learning, and again in 2021 in-person, and my students found it engaging both times. It did require some time to get it all set up, but clearly so much work had already gone into it. This purchase saved me hours and created an engaging resource I was able to use over and over with each of my classes with just minor modifications.” -Joy D.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Can't express how much I adored this. This was such a fantastic back to school activity - not as intimidating as I imagined and my kids loved it.” -Carlee A.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Great tutorial for building an escape room digitally.” -Lindsay M.
