Escape the Ordinary


 

Create an escape room for your students to have an interactive and fun experience when doing test reviews.  There are two escape rooms types that you can make that are free and easy to navigate.  

Thinglink.com allows you to easily build an escape room with google forms, videos, and audio.  I have used both there free and paid accounts with the biggest difference being I like the tag options better on the paid account. You start by picking a 2 dimensional picture or 3 dimensional picture from their library.  After selecting the picture you insert tags for each of your clues.  Once you are done you can share it with your students by copying the link.  

Google slides is the most recent escape room I've learned about.  Using transparent images, you build the room or rooms you wish to have with all the furniture and clues.  Once you build all of your slides, you can share the presentation with your students for them to try and escape.  When sending to your students make sure you force it into presentation mode by clicking file, publish to web, presentation, and then publish.  When you go through that process it will provide a URL in which you share with your students.  I suggest at the end of the presentation putting a google form for students to fill out, this will allow you to track when students are finishing and hold them accountable to work until they escape.  

Whether you use thinkglink, google slides, or both they provide an interactive and engaging experience for your students.
