Description

Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos is a celebration in Mexico and parts of the United States. It's celebrated the day after Halloween. This Day of the Dead Digital Escape Room offers information about this cultural celebration. On November 1 and 2, families get together to honor their deceased loved ones. They honor their ancestors with decorative altars to show their love and respect. People celebrate by having parties and parades, wearing colorful makeup and costumes, and making offerings to lost loved ones.  Editable sugar skulls or Calaveras are made to put at the altars.

Solve a series of puzzles and read passages to break open the locks. This activity is the perfect way for students to work together in cooperative groups, to learn about the Mexican culture, and to honor and celebrate those who are deceased, in a respectful way.

Digital EDUcational Escape Rooms are very similar to scavenger hunts. They involve students working in teams to use clues to crack multiple locks in a set amount of time. Digital Escapes apply learning in a fun and engaging way. This escape requires students to use a Google Form™ instead of actual locked boxes.
