How does it work?
Students begin in an escape room and click the start. They will see a presentation with instructions. They will be instructed to open the lock codes page to enter the codes. Then students will click on the number 1 to begin the escape.
This escape room will probably take students about 45-60 minutes to complete, depending on student ability levels. Another way to complete the escape is to have students do one section at a time, keep track of the codes, and enter them at the end of the week. A time limit may be given, but this can cause stress so determine what is best for your class. Some of the benefits of kids using these in teams are:
- Develops teamwork and collaboration
- Builds critical thinking skills
- Promotes problem-solving skills
- Promotes communication
- Paperless and No Prep
- Reinforces concepts
- Engaging and fun!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Karen Grierson said about BTS Character Ed Digital Escape:
I already have this Escape Room in my plans for the first week of school! What a wonderful topic for an escape room - character ed! Every student could use the reminder and what better way to establish team work than an activity like this one!!! We will definitely have to tackle it as a whole group but it will be the perfect way to get classroom discussion going! Thank you!

This was one of the first activities we did once we returned to in-person schooling. My students loved it! It was challenging for them, though as we did more escape rooms, they became better at solving the puzzles.
