Product Description


This is a fully functional, completely digital escape room that was designed to help teach Punnett squares. Students will learn to create Punnett squares for single and double traits (2x2 and 4x4 squares). Students will also learn to read and interpret the information from the square in order to determine probabilities for all offspring.

Once you begin using digital escape rooms, you will find that they are an exciting new way to provide instruction for your students. Having taught science in public schools for over 35 years, I don't get excited over many of the new techniques or activities. Most are simply repackaged versions of older ideas. Digital escape rooms are different, though. These activities teach students to solve problems, think critically and analytically, and also to read and follow directions. Students will not give up on these activities - they just keep on working. Students are challenged and are learning, but are having fun at the same time. Whether you purchase these activities or you decide to build your own, I strongly encourage teachers to get involved in using escape room activities in their classroom.

This activity works best as a review and/or enrichment activity, but it could also be utilized as an initial teaching resource for this topic.

You can visit Great Science Stuff to see more activities like this one.

Included in this activity are three fully viable options for using the assignment in your classroom: a printable version that can be used by students who do not have access to an internet ready computer or device, a web site version that can be accessed from any internet capable device, and a Microsoft OneNote version that will work for students who have access to that app. Also included are instructions for using each of the different versions of the escape room. Included in the instructions are all passwords for the activity.

Simply extract the files from the .zip file and you are ready to go.

This digital escape activity will challenge your students' problem solving and critical thinking skills while at the same time strengthening their understanding of the material. Students will be "playing a game" while learning. Students must read for context, answer questions, and use logic to move through the stages of this activity. When used as a small group activity, this notebook can be used to provide for collaborative learning in a competitive environment.  Questions in the activity may require students to remember or discover facts and interpret information to find passwords.

On average, to complete this assignment will require students have 40 to 50 minutes.

If you have questions, suggestions, comments, or any problems at all I would appreciate your feedback - positive or negative. I'm trying to refine these projects and optimize efficiency. Thanks.
