Heredity & Genetics ESCAPE ROOM LESSON

Genetics, Protein Synthesis, Punnett Square, Phenotype Data--it's all in here. Use actual locks and boxes, OR use this fun lesson with a simple envelope system! Enough problems for 7 groups of students, or more if you use the problems in duplicate. I actually made different codes and problems for each group. With locks: utilizes 2 3-digit locks, one MasterLock combination lock, and one Key lock. Four boxes, some paper, and a lot of fun!!
I got the locks at Dollar Tree, and the boxes are inexpensive unfinished wooden boxes. Your students will love it and want more.

7 different transcription/translation problem sets for box/envelope 1
7 different Punnett Square Sets for box/envelope 2
7 different Ciphers and graph problems for box/envelope 3

TWO DIFFERENT (1 min or 2 min) Speed Bump Cards (color-coded) for each group. (So fun to throw a team out for a minute or two--also color-coded)
Hint Tickets/Cards for all 3 boxes, color-coded so you can keep track of whom you have given hints to.
