Oceanography ESCAPE ROOM Lesson!
Students identify oceans, know about ocean sizes and comparisons, open different boxes to get more clues. Don't have boxes? That's ok! Create your own escape room experience with envelopes or pencil boxes. Have students decipher and answer questions about tides, currents and waves. Students demonstrate their oceanography knowledge AND have a blast!

Setup for 7 different groups, seven different codes. You can adapt it to fit an envelope system OR a 3 digit resettable lock. I bought mine (not resettable) at Dollar Tree, combos are on the outside of the package, so that is an option too! Use this as inspiration for even more Escape Room Lessons!

7 different ocean problem sets for box/envelope 2's code
7 different Ciphers and questions/problems for box/envelope 3
7 tickets to give students the code for the locks

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

Need an editable version to customize it to your locks? Go ahead and email me at shancrafty@gmail.com to make arrangements after purchase.
