After rolling a bowling ball down the lane, it disappears! Can your students find the code to open the ball receiver and finish the game? In this digital breakout, your students will complete varying tasks to retrieve codes. With the activities in this escape room, students will read and learn about balanced (equal) and unbalanced (unequal) forces and the effects of each - then they will answer questions to solve the secret codes. This fun and engaging digital escape room requires NO PREP and requires NO PRINTING - paperless! If your classroom is 1:1, students can work alone, but it is recommended for your students to work in groups of 2-3 on ONE device to solve the puzzles! Simple share the Google Sites™ link and let them get to work.

A digital escape room is a completely online game that begins with a theme or scenario. Students can work alone or work in groups in order to solve the code(s) to escape. They are challenged to solve different types of puzzle to retrieve the codes and clues. This breakout has 4 codes of varying difficulty. Escape rooms are fun and engaging for students and they LOVE them!

This escape room is meant to be challenging and should take your students 45 minutes to an hour to complete, depending on their ability levels.

NGSS3-PS2-2
Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion. Examples of motion with a predictable pattern could include a child swinging in a swing, a ball rolling back and forth in a bowl, and two children on a see-saw. Assessment does not include technical terms such as period and frequency.
NGSS3-PS2-1
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. Examples could include an unbalanced force on one side of a ball can make it start moving; and, balanced forces pushing on a box from both sides will not produce any motion at all. Assessment is limited to one variable at a time: number, size, or direction of forces. Assessment does not include quantitative force size, only qualitative and relative. Assessment is limited to gravity being addressed as a force that pulls objects down.
