Your Students will LOVE this activity. After their first escape, your students will beg to do more. There are multiple questions and puzzle solutions that REQUIRE CONTENT KNOWLEDGE in addition to unique & fun "escape room thinking."
In the last year I've created 5 original breakouts and my students (and I) HAVE A BLAST doing these. This is a medium-hard difficulty breakout and should take your upper level biology or human anatomy classes an hour to complete.
This breakout uses 6 digital locks that are completed within a Google Website I've designed and your students will access online. You will not need any physical locks or lock boxes for this breakout. Upon opening the final lock, a message confirms the group has "escaped." There are physical elements you will need to print: receipts, eye chart, hematocrit analysis charts, and blood type jigsaw chart.
*** I used tongue depressors for my jigsaw puzzle, but they can simply be cut out in any pattern. Also, I created fake blood samples for each of 6 patients, but these are not necessary in this version- there is a digital version of these on the breakout website. ***
Required for students to complete break out:
(1) knowledge of blood cells, blood types, pathway of blood through heart, heart anatomy & physiology
(2) problem solving skills, teamwork, collaboration, a little patience
(3) internet access (laptops/ipads/smartphones)
(4) Printed materials included in this package

UNIQUE & ORIGINAL
I have taken great care in making diverse puzzles that would be fresh and challenging for the same class to enjoy throughout the course. If you are purchasing multiple breakouts for the same course, each escape will contain unique puzzles and problems.
