In this rigorous, fun activity, students will work in teams to race against the clock to find all of the codes and crack the final message to escape the classrooms.
Based on the famous "Escape the Room" locations, we decided to implement this in the classroom. This activity includes directions and an answer key for the teacher, and all of the printable materials needed to complete the activity.
Split your class into color-coded groups (made to accommodate up to 36 students) which they will work together to solve all four clues. Each clue is color coded, and the pack includes puzzles, "We did it!" signs, color-coded clues, and hint cards (in case those kiddos get stuck!)!
Have a blast watching your kids use collaboration and teamwork to solve these clues and try to beat the clock. I've never seen my kids more engaged!
