Reasons why I LOVE using Escape Challenges with my students:

  • They are academically rigorous and challenging
  • They are an engaging way to review content skills and/or strategies
  • They reinforce social skills, such as teamwork, collaboration, respect
  • Students learn to manage time appropriately and focus under pressure
  • They gamify learning in a meaningful way
  • They encourage independence and risk taking
  • They require students to problem solve and think critically
