Back to School Digital Escape Room | Digital and Editable: This technology-themed back to school digital escape room provides students with the opportunity to work independently or with their peers to solve 8 retro technology-focused challenges. Students must solve these required challenges to "escape" from the school technology storage room that they have accidentally locked themselves into. 

This is a perfect first week of school activity to help build community with cooperative learning and engage students in social-emotional learning for 6th, 7th or 8th grade. This digital escape room should take your students about 30 minutes to complete from start to finish.

Once this escape room is purchased, the teacher will get access to a Google Form link that is 100% editable and customizable for your classroom needs. Students will get the opportunity to "escape" while learning about retro technology. 

No prep is required from the teacher or students - all that is needed is a teacher Google Drive account. Students can use Google Forms without having a Google account.

Teacher Feedback

  1. "I used this activity for the first day of school and it went extremely well! Students each had their own device so they completed it independently, but were able to turn to their table partner if they had questions. I especially liked the fact that it had a customizable google form to use for student interest surveys at the beginning of the activity. Will use again!"
  2. "Super easy activity that serves as a great 'First week of school' activity for the kids! Since it's a google form, it can be modified to fit your classroom needs."
  3. "This was a great activity to allow students to have a bit of competitive fun during the first day of school."
