Celebrating winter in middle school can be a challenge – not all students want to celebrate the cold or are excited if it is a year when the Winter Olympics are happening.
However, most students LOVE games, especially ones where they can compete again their classmates. Students love digital escape rooms.
In a digital escape room, students are given a series of challenges to “escape” a situation e.g., accidentally boarding a plane, getting locked in a storage room and must solve the challenges to “escape”.
Note: These challenges are all online and computer-based, no students are locked in any spaces. It is just part of the storyline of the digital escape room.
If you are looking for an engaging activity to do with your middle school students, try this Winter Sports Digital Escape Room.
This Winter Sports Digital Escape Room provides students with the opportunity to work independently or with their peers to solve 11 winter sports-themed challenges.
