Maybe it’s just the right activity to do with them to encourage their journeys. I do one per quarter and they love them! The Growth Mindset Escape Rooms have students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on secret missions. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit 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 inspirational quote from a famous figure about growth mindset. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final 4 digit combination. No props needed!! Students can report the final 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.
