Product Description

Navajo Code Escape Room: American History Escape Room to Crack the Navajo Code! Defeat the American Illuminati!

In this 100% fun and engaging escape room breakout activity, students are introduced to the secret Navajo Code developed by the Navajo Code Talkers in World War II that was used to transmit messages while evading enemy detention.

Students are placed in the shoes of investigators on the trail of the "American Illuminati" who have recently made threats to attack four of our nation's most storied landmarks: the World War II Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King, Jr Memorial, and the Vietnam Memorial. Student investigative teams have one class period to solve four clues related to the Navajo Code and World War II, then complete the final formula to crack the code. All four monuments are set to be destroyed unless teams can solve the code before time expires. Do you have what it takes to save our history?

Students use the Navajo Code to translate four secret clues, conduct research or use background knowledge, and use the clue answers to solve the final code that will save our nation's monuments! A modified final code is included to make it a touch easier for lower classes. A 60-minute timer is also included to display as student teams try to break the code!

Guaranteed to excite and engage your classroom. Great for an end of the year, team-building, or skill-building assignment!

Don't have a box or a lock? No worries -- simple workaround ideas are included that keep students focused!
