Escape Rooms have students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on a secret mission to solve the clues in less than an hour (You decide the amount of time!) The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit lock combination based on the four 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 a fact about U.S. History. For example, students will learn the number of amendments and articles, analyze excerpts or learn about the Boston Tea Party. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final lock combination. No props needed!! Students can report the final lock combination to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! The best age range for this resource is 8+.

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 is included with each escape room. Once your students try one of my escape rooms, they will beg for more! This activity is for all types of learners, especially kinesthetic. In addition to learning or reinforcing the subject matter, my escape rooms encourage teamwork and critical thinking. As a “timed” challenge, students will be engaged from beginning to end! An answer key and teacher directions are provided for each escape room. Time needed: 30-60 minutes/escape
