Impress your students with an interactive Back to School Digital Escape Room for ANY SUBJECT. The DIGITAL school supplies theme Escape Room is a winning combination of puzzles, codes and ciphers! An engaging NO-PREP digital activity with a twist of FUN that provides the perfect team-building or critical thinking activity for the first day of school.
Want to create a SUPER COOL syllabus that lets the kids know the supplies they need for your class? Look no further!
The whole activity is housed on ONE website, making this a cinch to share and play! No outside links and no accounts or login required!
As students progress through the digital escape room, they will earn “keys” to determine the final 9-digit code. With 11 puzzles that vary in difficulty, this escape room is ideal for igniting critical thinking skills and teamwork. Puzzles range from ciphers and color codes, to directional locks, memory match, word scrambles, and jigsaw puzzles.
Please test this link to ensure the site is not blocked by your district:
IF YOU GET A 404 ERROR THAT MEANS YOUR SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS BLOCKED THE WEBSITE. PLEASE REACH OUT TO YOUR TECH PERSON OR EMAIL YOUR DISTRICT WITH THE LINK ASKING FOR PERMISSION.
You *could* use this as your very own school supply list if it fits your needs/classroom. Supplies mentioned in this game include very basic school supplies: backpack, markers, notebook, folders, scissors, crayons, eraser, pencil, binder, glue, ruler, paper, tape, pens, tissues
This is a self-checking activity that offers immediate student feedback. The codes are set with “answer validation,” therefore, students cannot move on to the next challenge until they enter the code or solve the puzzle correctly. Students will use deductive reasoning as well as trial and error to figure out the correct answer. Please note: You will not be able to collect scores or data since this is a self-checking, view-only, digital activity.
All you need to do is send students the link, it’s THAT easy! This digital escape room has students working through NINE challenges, with mystery puzzles along the way. The puzzles progressively get more difficult. Should they get the code wrong, they can guess again. Therefore, the codes themselves are somewhat like a puzzle. They’ll need to use deductive reasoning to determine which answer they need to change.
You need access to the internet and technology devices (Chromebooks, iPads, or laptops). Google accounts are NOT needed! (no e-mail addresses are required) This is a DIGITAL activity only and it is NOT editable.
