Students are never as motivated as when they compete against the clock to stop a nefarious hacker destroying the internet or when they are searching for the entrance to the mummy’s tomb. Escape Rooms or Breakout Games promise an hour of puzzle fun, teamwork and logical thinking wrapped up in an exciting story, and many teachers are keen to harness this new trend for their classes. This guide is filled with advice on how to get started with your first escape room lesson, with little or no cost. It contains over 30 puzzle templates and instructions for Microsoft Office, Google and Genial.ly that can be adapted for any subject and any age group and can be used in combination with real locks or as part of a digital activity in class or during remote learning.
