25+ Free Digital Escape Rooms {Free!}
Rating

Try out one of these FREE Digital Escape Rooms to bring some well-deserved amusement to your home or classroom!

Escape Rooms are traditionally a physical “locked” room in which there are clues on how to escape. You need to solve each clue or problem that is presented in order to move onto the next clue, which, when you’ve solved enough, will eventually allow you to leave the room. Now, imagine this scenario, but in a virtual setting.

A digital escape room, like the ones described below, will give you a short story in reference to the theme. As you click through the prompts they give you, there will come a time where you need to solve a problem or a clue in order to click to the next prompt. Just as in real life, you won’t be able to “escape” until all the clues have been solved.

Unrestricted Use

Rating

The students were given one period each week for 5 weeks to explore their interests and plan, implement and produce a Genius Hour Presentation in a format of their choosing. They began with a few worksheets to identify their interest areas and various ideas in which they may present their information and also various formats both electronically and paper-based which they could use to showcase their learning. The students used books, ipads and computers to access information. Various showcases included working replicas of battery-operated cars and helicopters, working volcanoes, a hockey rink, baking, painting and posters. Students were so engaged that most students completed the majority of their projects outside of school on their own time.

Messner. While reading the story, we talked about the different animals that we
saw and what they did in the pictures. After reading the book we, we made a
chart of animals that lived over the snow and animals that lived under the snow
(both from the story and our prior knowledge. We then decided to make a large
mural of what animals do over and under the snow with the list that we had
made. Students were split into different groups that were in charge of various
animals (ex. animals under the snow, animals over the snow, animals in the sky
and nature). Using their creativity, they were to create pictures of animals in their
certain category through collaboration with one another.
