Running a print (rather than digital) escape room in your class with one set of locks and multiple groups may seem like a daunting task. Don't worry! It is completely manageable using the tips below and, after your first time through, you and your students will be hooked on classroom escape rooms! You got this! 😊
6) An Assistant (optional). It is not impossible to run a print (physical locks) classroom escape room with one teacher, but having an extra pair of hands can make it easier. While the teacher is providing hints and overseeing general classroom management, the assistant can be collecting and timing lock combination attempts. A reliable student, educational assistant, or fellow teacher can all fill this role.
There you have it! I hope you find these tips useful when facilitating escape rooms in your classroom.
