With this link, you can access a google slides document with the product. Instructions for using digital resources: 1. You will need a google account. 2. Open the document from the link and click FILE, MAKE A COPY. This will be your MASTER COPY. (rename it anything you would like.) 3. Make ANOTHER COPY, this will be the one you share with your students. 4. Use the SHARE button in the top right corner (blue button) to get the shareable link to send to your students. 5. Share the document with your students. Once they open the file, they must make a copy (click FILE, MAKE A COPY) so they can edit their document and not your master copy. This can also be used whole group, in that case, just make a master copy and then another to edit in front of the entire class! :) These can be used with laptops, desktops, google classrooms, iPads, and tablets. Digital resources work better if your students have their own google account so they can save their document and share it with you so you can grade it! :) This is not a must, but definitely more helpful!

Earth Day Escape Room - April- Fun Facts- Recycle - Print and go!

The Earth Day Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode fun and interesting facts about Earth Day. The Earth Day Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on a secret mission to save the planet. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit code based on the 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 interesting facts about Earth Day. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final code. Students can report the final code to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! No props needed!! This is a NO PREP, PRINT & GO Activity! Students are sent on a “secret mission” and given a back story to ignite their active learning skills. They are given a code name which makes them feel as if they are part of the secret mission.

Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes. 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.
