Product Description

Keep your students learning all year long with an Escape Room to engage them at the end of the year! This resource is designed to help your students review key content from the entire year of US History with puzzles and challenges to solve. It is an immersive escape room activity that culminates in a lock box with prizes. In order to fully present the activity, you will be required to purchase additional items such as locks and black lights. If you cannot access these additional resources, you may want to try the simple activity that is available in another resource.

With this purchase, you will receive:

Detailed instructions for creating your scenario based escape room,

A PowerPoint presentation to review the scenario and rules with your students prior to the game,

Six different challenges for key units in US History: Colonization, American Revolution, Bill of Rights, Westward Expansion, Industrial Revolution, and Eras of US History.

Destination Placards which allow your students to find additional clues in your room,

Black Light challenges revealing secret messages to solving your lock box,

Puzzles that review content and reveal clues,

Ciphers to decode for answers,

Clue Coupons if a group gets stuck, and

Reward posters for the end.

How much time will this take?

✥The resource is designed for a class period - but, I have also included directions on how to shorten the activity, modify for your ELL or SPED students, and extend for your GT students!.

✨Money saving tips are also included in this resource.
