    Let's add a fun way to review some skills and give your students ideas of ways young people can help the environment. This No-Locks Escape Room is the perfect way to do this! This resource is perfect for Earth Day or any day!

    In the No Locks Escape Room students complete tasks to earn a method of ‘escaping’. The prep for the events with NO LOCKS is minimal- just making copies. No locks or boxes! Teams are working together to escape and learn ways to help the environment!

    The STEM Challenge included is about bottle flipping. Students will complete multiple trials and analyze data to determine the best size bottle to flip. After the challenge - RECYCLE THE BOTTLES!

    NOTE: This resource is available in a money-saving bundle:


    This event is called Escape and Help the Environment. Students will complete 4 tasks. Each task will lead to a word clue. When the answer is shown to you, students have unlocked that task and will be awarded an Earth Day bookmark. After getting through the last task the team has Escaped.

    • For the first task, students identify spelling mistakes in sentences about Earth Day and the environment.
    • For the second task, students use a garden grid and coordinates to locate items in the garden.
    • For the third task, students solve multiplication word problems. The problems are all about recycling.
    • For the fourth task, students read a passage about Earth Day and ways they can help. They answer multiple-choice questions.

    This resource includes detailed instructions in the teacher’s guide. This exploration uses a minimum of materials with quick prep for you.

    Students toss bottles, record their landings, calculate the fractional result, convert to percentages, and determine which size bottle and how much water works the best. After tossing four sizes of bottles students advance to the design challenge. Can they use their data to choose the right bottle to fill with something other than a liquid?

    The package specifically contains:

    • Cover sheet
    • Teacher Overview
    • 6 pages of Teacher Direction,
    • Lab Sheet in two versions (one for pairs of students and one for teams of four students)
    • 1 page of photos
    • Scoring rubric
    • Terms of Use
    • All forms are provided in an editable format!

    The Teacher’s Guide includes images with step-by-step procedures to make this as simple as possible for you.

    Materials needed for the experiment are four sizes of empty bottles, water, measuring cups, and towels. The design portion of this resource uses a variety of items (like marbles, beans, rice). The teacher’s guide lists many items you can try, but you can also try anything you have in your classroom – if it fits in the bottle. Don’t purchase anything- just use what you have!

    Your students will love tossing those bottles and then designing their own experiment to extend the activity!
