What is a digital Escape Activity?
This is a fun way for you to review concepts, build collaboration, and JUST HAVE FUN! Students are placed into groups and they have to figure out codes OR solve problems to get from one room to the next before they run out of time! The decks are not timed, but if you want to set a timer, you can do that. 🙂

FROM THE BLOG:
Were you ready to jump on the digital escape room games in your elementary classroom, until you realized that there were so many task cards to print, things to juggle, and papers to store? And then… what happens when one thing gets lost? I know… been there! I created several different escape rooms using task cards, QR codes, google forms, and slides – but UGHHH! By the end, I was more frustrated with everything than enjoying the game.
THEN CAME BOOM cards/decks! Well…actually, after that came Google Sites – we made these for our district for a HOT MINUTE! Then came Boom! With Boom – everything is NOT ONLY internet based, but they are self-checking, self-guiding, and SUPER engaging! Oh… AND – PAPERLESS and NO PREP! Ya’ll… it doesn’t get better than that! Right?
HEAR FROM OTHERS: 📢
My students LOVE doing escape rooms and honestly so do I! The excitement on my kids face when they see Monty pop up on the screen is priceless! I actually used this escape room twice this year. The first time I used it after teaching time, place value, and 'flip flop' addition to get a better understanding of who grasped the concepts after these lessons were taught. I also used it as part of my big review unit at the end of the school year. Thank you for creating something that not only keeps the kids engaged but also keeps the kids excited about learning!
We had just finished our Math book and this was a great way to review different concepts from math and language arts. My students loved being able to help Monty escape. I wish you had more escape rooms (that were not holiday related) because I would buy them up!!!! (MORE HAVE BEEN ADDED) 🙂
This escape room was fabulous! Literally the best one I've ever found on TPT. Thank you so much! I would love for you to make more!
I LOVE digital escape rooms through the Boom Learning platform!! This is so engaging and great review of skills!! I can't wait to see more of these and the kids LOVE IT!!!
My students loved this! It was a great change of pace from regular instruction and felt very much like a game.
