Have you ever tried using a spring digital escape room with your students to celebrate the return of spring?
When you’re deep in the freezing temperatures of winter, it can be hard to imagine springtime, with grass, flowers, and the sun warm on your face. But eventually, the snow thaws, and the world comes alive again!
And what is one thing people love to do when spring finally comes around? Get their hands in the dirt and plant a garden! If you’re longing for the sunshiny days of spring and excited to get into the garden, then this spring digital escape room is for you.
Digital escape rooms are a blast for students. They’re put in a situation where they’re trapped (not literally, of course) and need to escape. These situations can include getting lost in a park, accidentally getting locked in the principal’s office, etc., and in order to escape, students must solve a series of challenges.
Digital Escape Rooms are a great way to get kids collaborating together to solve interactive and out-of-the-box challenges; they can all play at once, and the best part? There is no teacher or student prep required.
Spring Digital Escape Room
This spring digital escape room provides students with the opportunity to work independently or with their peers to solve 10 spring-themed challenges. 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.
Students must solve the required challenges to “escape” the school garden shed they accidentally got locked in. Participants will use their previous spring knowledge, as well as learn new things about the season, all while reinforcing their literacy skills.
This is a perfect activity to help build community and engage students in social-emotional learning for 6th, 7th or 8th grade. This digital escape room should take your students about 30-60 minutes to complete from start to finish. Times will vary depending on the students. Once this escape room is purchased, the teacher will get access to a Google Form link that is 100% editable and customizable for your classroom needs.
No prep is required from the teacher or students – all that is needed is a teacher Google Drive account. Students can use Google Forms without having a Google account. Learn more about How to Use Digital Escape Rooms Without a School Google Account.
This digital escape room is also included in the Full Year Digital Escape Room Mega Bundle.
