What are teachers saying…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “My students love escape rooms, but they take so long to prep.  This is SUCH a time-saver & provides additional techniques for clues that I’d never considered.  THANK YOU!” -Andrea R.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This is my third year using escape rooms with my students and I love how this one is a little different from many of the others. The students need to not only understand the content being applied, but they also have to use analytical tactics and logical thinking. Props for preparing something different from the others.” -Kristin M.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Wow, I loved it. I don’t teach ELA but I really wanted the templates so that I could use it to teach Social Emotional Learning Strategies in a fun way – it worked! It took quite a while to come up with the storyline, the puzzles… but it was worth it and the checklist & ideas provided in this resource were super helpful. Thank you :)” -Franziska A.
