This digital escape room is intended as a review of the concepts taught in a Plate Tectonics unit. Instead of the traditional escaping, students are tasked with collecting 6 items in order to be able to join an expedition to the center of the Earth.  To run the activity all you need is to provide students access by sharing the digital escape room link included in the download.

The download includes an overview of the activity as well as print-outs of the clues, and decoders. The activity is run completely online so there is little to no prep for teachers.

If you find this resource helpful or have some comments on how to make it better, please take the time to review it. Thanks :)

If you'd like some tips on how to create your own digital escape room, I invite you to read my blog, Teaching Above the Test.

NGSSMS-ESS2-2
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
NGSSMS-ESS2-3
Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions. Examples of data include similarities of rock and fossil types on different continents, the shapes of the continents (including continental shelves), and the locations of ocean structures (such as ridges, fracture zones, and trenches). Paleomagnetic anomalies in oceanic and continental crust are not assessed.
