NO COPIES REQUIRED! With the digital version of this Escape Room, all you need are a few computers/chromebooks set up for each of your groups. Once you've shared the activity with them, they are all set. I usually share it via Google Classroom to make it easier for them to access. There are Student Code Sheets if you want to print those for the students to write their codes on while they solve the tasks; however, these are optional.

With the printable version of this Escape Room, you will simple set up a couple stations for each task, set up around 2-3 "Breakout Computers," and let the students do the rest of the work as they work diligently to solve these ELA tasks.

This resource pairs GREAT with my Thanksgiving ELA Activity - Narrative Writing
