The school supplies have come to life and are running away! If students don’t find them, they won’t have enough supplies for the year. Not only will students be learning about their classmates, they will also be learning about where different school supplies are located in the classroom. They must solve a string of “find someone who” questions and clues, as well as decode different ciphers. If your class has never played an escape style game before, I suggest playing this as a whole class. However, materials are provided for up to 6 different groups to play at one time. The games comes in color, and black and white.

**Versions with and without QR codes included!

This is an interactive game where the students are timed. Students try and solve clues and questions to breakout and escape the classroom. You the teacher, can decide how much time your students have to complete the task. I suggest 45 minutes, but it is up to your discretion. You can project a timer for your class, or put one somewhere for all the students to see, so they can keep track of how much time they have left to complete their task.

This is similar to a scavenger hunt where students will be moving around the room, looking for clues to unlock their envelopes (I have included riddles and suggestions on where to hide each clue). A paper is provided so students can write their work down. For many of the questions, students must have an answer that matches one on an envelope. If the answers do not match, they can’t open or “unlock” the envelope, and must rework the question.

*Everything is included, however teachers must provide their own envelopes.

I give step by step instructions on how to set up the game, including pictures! This is sure to capture the attention of your students.
