This "Back to School" Escape Room activity is a great way to start the year off right in your classroom!
Your students will be thrilled to experience the excitement of an "Escape Room" at school. They will need to use cooperation and perseverance to solve the clues and open the locked box, which will help them as individual learners as well as building your classroom community. The concept of Growth Mindset is introduced as well, and this is a great anchor activity to refer to throughout the year.
All clues are provided, along with an answer key and detailed explanation for each puzzle. This is geared toward students from 5th - 8th grade, although gifted and talented fourth graders would be likely be successful as well.
This Escape Room activity is designed for use with a lockable box, hasp, and 4 locks (letter lock, directional lock, 3-digit number lock, and 4-digit number lock). These items can be bought as part of a kit or individually.
