About this resource :

This Back To School Escape has me SO excited!!! Why?! Well, two challenges are editable and get your students learning about both YOU and your class. Three challenges are basic math brain challenges and three are interchangeable grade level specific challenges for grades 5-8!

This escape is MUCH different than others since it includes editable challenges and challenges that can be swapped based on grade level.


What makes this escape activity different?

This activity does not require the challenges to be completed in any particular order. In order for students to “escape” they simply have to find all 8 codes. This allows for (a) differentiation, (b) removal of challenges for time and (c) the ability for you to only make one copy of each challenge because as groups finish one challenge their next one can be whatever is available.

What is included?

⇢ CCSS and TEKS standard alignment for each grade level

⇢ Clear escape directions

⇢ A digital lock option

⇢ Links to locks/boxes to purchase

⇢ Detailed puzzle teacher information

⇢ 5 cross grade level challenges with prep instructions and materials

⇢ 12 grade level specific challenges that can be used for the last three challenges

⇢ Hint cards for each challenge (PDF format and EDITABLE PPT format)

⇢ Group code sheet

⇢ Student workbook

⇢ End of escape signs and a sign template

⇢ Prize ideas

⇢ Answer keys

Materials Needed

You do not need to spend money on locks and boxes (although that option and links to materials are included). You can simply use manila folders or the included digital lock.

All you will need is scissors and a fastening brad!
