What is an Escape Room?

Have you heard about Escape Rooms? Perhaps you’ve tried a few out yourself?

If not, don’t worry, we’ve summarized everything! Check out What is an Escape Room?!

If you’re a teacher, you probably thought, “This would be great to do with my students!

You’re absolutely right! Escape Rooms can serve as excellent educational tools.

The problem is that the logistics of bringing all your students to a Brick & Mortar Escape Room would be a nightmare. But why not bring an Escape Room to your classroom?

Can I do it in my school?

Absolutely! 🙂

Yes, the puzzles of the “classic” Escape Rooms are really well done. There are secret doors to open, lasers, smoke, sound effects, zombies…

Recreating this type of atmosphere can be a break for creation. In addition, you could get in trouble if you decide to install lasers or bring zombies into your school! 🙂

No problem if you create a scenario based on the theme that most represents your students. You just have to complete the theme with puzzles inspired by Escape Rooms.

Is an Escape Room something we could do at school?

Yes. Your students will love to learn through play.

The Escape Room will allow them to develop team work skills while working on their logic and mathematics. It’s a fun way to learn.

You can customize the Escape Kit to add additional challenges or increase the difficulty of some tests.

The Escape Room can be done in a primary school, a middle school, a high school or even a daycare or after-school center.

Will my students participate?

They will participate and here’s why:

Instead of giving lectures or assigning reading and/or writing, you will immerse your students in a story and give them the opportunity to achieve a goal in a short time.

It will force them to move around the classroom, solve puzzles with their classmates, and also to show off their individual strengths!

Begin with Escape Kit

Advantages of using an Escape Kit:

  • Print one for each team: You can divide your students into small groups (5 or more). In addition, you can re-use the kit year after year.
  • Customizable: You can add your own touches such as the name of the class, a joke, pictures of the children… Customization is optional, but if you have time, it makes for an even more immersive experience.

Teachers love us!

Last Friday, we tried out our first escape room from @escapegamekit. I chose The sleeping curse! The children had to go to different rooms in the school where they met an adult who gave them a riddle. The riddles were very varied and fun. With each puzzle, the students received a clue and a piece of a key. The clues collected were used to find the spell and the pieces of key to open the Chamber of Secrets. Of course we had to adapt a little for the number of students. Each team went to the rooms in a different order. There were two sets of each puzzle, so each room could have two teams at the same time. We had a lot of fun and the Chamber of Secrets had some yummy edible gold!

My students are learning to cooperate, which is why I wanted to bring an Escape Room to the classroom. We tried out "The Lost Mummy". Puzzles were very well designed puzzles and allowed students to work together in small groups.

I bought the Lost Mummy game last night. I set up the game for my high school students today. It was a huge success... 60 students in groups of three to six. It turned out really well. Thank you so much!
