This escape room has students decode interesting facts Lewis and Clark, the Oregon Trail and the California Gold Rush. Sometimes students just need a day of movement around the room!
The Westward Expansion Escape Rooms BUNDLE has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on three different secret missions! The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit combination based on the decoders/clues.
Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal interesting facts about Westward Expansion. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final 4 digit combination. No props needed!! Students can report the final code/combination to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but is not necessary at all!
The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes.
You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included for each Escape Room.
An answer key and teacher directions are provided.
Time needed: 30-60 minutes per Escape Room
