Since I built this Escape Room with a website creator instead of a software there's no way to save a student's progress through the story line, however, a student can easily find his/her way back to his/her last activity by progressing through the parts of the story he/she had previously finished.

Note: Creating this Escape Room was quite the undertaking. I've had numerous editors; I've double checked the text, as well; and I had my students on the lookout for any errors -- if you find any grammatical errors in the text, please notify me and I'll update the website as soon as I can! Thank you!


NEED THIS RESOURCE TO ENGAGE YOUR STUDENTS DURING SOCIAL DISTANCING? Look no further! The worksheets for this activity have been copied into a Google Doc to help!

View the files below and copy and paste the content into your own Google Docs, then share the experience with your students!! The Google Docs are a bit more basic than the normal worksheets, but they have the same functionality!! The link should ask if you'd like to make a copy or not. This will be your copy.


Good luck, you Hardcore Educators!!
