"So many great activities that are different from other digital escape rooms! I will definitely use this on the last days of the upcoming school year. My students will probably need some support but it will be fun to see which activities they can tackle without my help! Thanks for another fantastic escape room!" - Karen G.
"As an ESY Distance Learning educator and previously a 3rd Grade Special Ed inclusion teacher (next year unknown), I need resources that would both work with my diverse group and be engaging. Students will be able to work independently and with the group throughout the use of this resource. They can be focused and on task." - Cindy C.
"My students loved working through the challenges to escape. It was a great last week of school activity for the students." - Ginger H.
"I used this with my virtual third graders as something fun to do at the end of the year. They struggled with getting started but once they got past the first puzzle, they had a blast! Those that did not finish were even willing to stay after school to complete it!" - Michelle B.
"Was a blast to use this on our last day of school!" - Crafty Creations
