A Unique Escape Room Experience:
Unlike many escape rooms, the teacher is in total control on which of the 8 puzzles they want to use and in which order to use them. Each puzzle is independent of the others. This is great for shorter or longer class periods.
The local Gardening Foundation volunteers are very excited for their big Earth Day event. They have trees, flowers, and shrubs they were planning to plant in a local park. Unfortunately, the head of the organization was called away on emergency business. She left a well-hidden key to the trailer with all the plants so that no one would get unauthorized access. Sadly, that means the volunteers also can’t get to the plants. Never fear! Before she left, she left a series of clues to reveal the location of the key. Only a true Earth Day enthusiast will be able to solve these clues and help gain access to the plants for Earth Day. Can you help?
