Your students will work through reflection and refraction questions to get a code. If the code is correct they can unlock the station and they will get a piece of a secret message. If they get all 4 station codes correct, they will have the entire secret message.

How will this benefit my students?

  • Reinforces content learned in the classroom
  • Fosters collaboration
  • Strengthens academic vocabulary
  • Builds concept mastery
  • Creates a feeling of excitement

What pieces are included:

  • Digital Escape Room Google Drive™ file
  • Printable Escape Room PDF file
  • Student recording documents
  • Digital secret message visuals for unlock codes
  • Teacher Instructions
  • Answer key

What makes up the escape room (print or digital):

  • 4 stations with 3 questions each
  • 4 decoders
  • 4 secret message components
  • student recording document for easy grading

How long will the activity take?

  • Approximately 20-25 minutes, although some may work through faster or slower.
  • You may see more variation in completion times if you have students completing the digital version independently.
  • You can extend the activity by requiring students to have discussions at the stations and have separate "code checking stations" so that students move around more.

Technology requirements:

  • If using the digital version, students will need access to an internet-connected device (Chromebook, laptop, iPad)
  • Access to Google Drive™
    • If your district blocks students from accessing files hosted outside the district, they will not be able to access the digital secret messages in the digital game. I have included 3 workaround options for this, including step-by-step instructions on linking the secret message documents from your own Google drive.
