The Underground Railroad Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode interesting facts about the Underground Railroad to help escaped slaves find freedom. They will also learn about Harriet Tubman's role in the Underground Railroad.

The Underground Railroad Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on a secret mission to find the freedom map! The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit lock combination 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 an interesting fact about the Underground Railroad. 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+. 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. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders is included.

An answer key and teacher directions are provided.
Time needed: 30-60 minutes

A 30 page PDF is included.
