Escape games can be an excellent method of getting students involved in learning, but if you don't have the kit with locks, they can be tricky to do. Here's a completely digital escape game - no/low prep, you just need to make sure that your students have access to Google Sites!
This escape activity puts students in the situation of stopping Hitler - they are time travelers with a mission, and will need to find some information about Hitler's rise to power in order to unlock their orders and determine the best time to stop him. The activity includes the topics of: setting the scene (post-WWI Germany), leader of the party, the beer hall putsch, the enabling act and the Reichstag Fire.
Be aware that escape games are meant to be challenging - your students will have to work together, read the clues carefully, and be willing to take risks in order to crack the codes. The teacher's guide includes all of the information and hints you need to help students who get lost along the way.
