Discover 6 Powerful Escape Room Benefits That Get Results

Digital-escape-rooms-1

Looking for high-interest, engaging activities that will challenge your students while practicing curriculum skills? A digital escape room is the answer! Below I’ll share why.

Interactive Activities

What is a Digital Escape Room?

Escape rooms are one of my favorite activities for reviewing all content areas! They challenge students to solve a series of clues and puzzles to escape a virtual “room”. 

It begins with a high-interest theme and storyline that hooks the students from the start. They will find hidden links in the virtual room that lead to interactive, content-based activities. 

As students complete the activities, they will crack the secret codes needed to escape!

So, Why Use a Digital Escape Room?

Digital escape rooms can be a fun and engaging way to teach and reinforce content in elementary classes. Here are 6 benefits to using them.

1) Promotes teamwork and collaboration

Students can work together in small groups to solve the puzzles and complete tasks. 

2) Develops problem-solving skills

The puzzles and challenges in digital escape rooms require students to think critically and use their problem-solving skills.

3) Encourages communication skills

Students must communicate with each other effectively in order to solve the puzzles and complete the tasks in the resource.

4) Reinforces content knowledge

These resources are often designed to align with specific content areas, such as math, ELA, or science. By solving puzzles related to the content, students reinforce their knowledge and understanding.

5) Increases engagement and motivation

These activities can be highly engaging and motivating for students, as they provide a fun and interactive way to learn.

6) Provides immediate feedback

Finally, they provide immediate feedback to students, letting them know if they are on the right track or need to adjust their approach. This can be helpful for students who may struggle with traditional forms of assessment.

How Do Digital Escape Rooms Work?

These resources are no prep and easy to use! All you need to do is share the link with students. The escape rooms are housed in a Google Slide presentation and shared with students through a presentation link. 

As students work through the escape room, they will complete activities using Google apps, such as Slides, Sheets and Forms.

All my digital escape rooms include a teacher guide that walks you through each step, activity and secret code with answer keys for everything. You’ll also have access to optional printable hint cards in case your students get stuck, printable “I Escaped” stickers for motivation, and student response sheets.
