This Student Success Escape
is perfect for a back to school activity in ANY class.
This could also be done any time during the year to give some extra tips, reminders, and encouragement to students. This escape is similar to my Teacher-Staff Escape, except the clues have been adapted/changed to tips for student success. If you plan on doing subject-related escapes in your classroom, this is an excellent way to introduce your students to solving clues and managing an escape with classmates.
Clues relate to averaging grades, making academic goals, examining advice, and more. Some topics include studying, not procrastinating, eating healthy, getting enough sleep, volunteering, possessing integrity, organizing, prioritizing, etc
. This escape also has an additional option for 2 of the clues to accommodate struggling students.
The best part is that you don't have to buy locks or boxes to do this escape. Each clue has a picture of the lock students are trying to open along with the clues. Then, a sheet is included for participants to write the code to each lock. Of course, the physical locks are more fun, but I definitely understand school funds are limited. This also works if you have only one lock box for the class to share or several lock box sets for groups.) If you don't have any locks, I suggest using the Google Form - see below.
❤This activity also comes with access to a Google Form
so that students can put their answers into the form and get immediate feedback
if they are correct or incorrect as long as they have a tech device to use. This way, you don't even have to set physical locks! The form is self-checking
! YAY! (A link and a QR code is included so that you can choose what is easiest for your students to access.)
Materials needed if you are using physical locks (pictures of materials are included in the lesson):
3 digit lock
4 digit lock
5 letter alphabet lock
Box with a lockable clasp
This student escape includes step-by-step instructions, hint cards, and well-designed clues to engage your students and get them to think critically, problem solve, and work collaboratively in the classroom.
This escape activity should last about 45 to an hour minutes. If you don't have that much time, you can always leave off one of the clues.
