Engage your students with this digital escape room following your study of The Odysse
y. Students will work in small groups to solve puzzles in order to "escape the room." This is a no prep activity--all you need to do is share a link to the game! You can share the link by posting it in your online classroom, by projecting it from your laptop, by writing it on the board, or by printing it out for students. Easy!
The game includes a self-checking Google Form, so you can step back and let students pace themselves. Once students break out, they will get a congratulations message they can show to you to let you know they've finished. For differentiation purposes, I've included a teacher guide with visuals and hints to help you coach struggling students.
This game should take average high school students about 40 minutes to play--you can adjust the time if needed.
