ROOOOOAAAAAARRRRRRRR!!!!! What is that??!!! Where am I? Last thing I remembered we were taking a test on patterns in math class. I must have fallen asleep or something because now I look around and I am surrounded by a jungle of tall trees and thick bushes. I get to my feet and I hear it again! ROOOOOAAAAAARRRRRRRR!!!!! It is getting closer! I don’t think I am in math class anymore! I start running and I see an opening in the forest. I get to the clearing and see the most outrageous sight! In the field, there are several dinosaurs! How did I get here? There is no time to stop and think. I see a cave. I know that will be a great place to hide so I run to the cave as fast as I can! When I get to the cave, I see strange drawings on the wall. The drawings look so familiar. I got it! It is the patterns that we have learned in math class. May be that is how I get back home. I need to solve the puzzles on the wall! I better hurry before I am eaten as a T-Rex Snack!

What is a Digital Escape?

Why Use Digital Escapes?
A digital escape requires no preparation of materials, no time spent setting up, and no purchase of a Breakout EDU kit.

School’s Security got you blocked??? Some districts and schools block Google Sites from outside their domain, so I now include a Google Slides version of the escape! I also include the links to the forms and puzzles so that you can create your own site or embed your own links within your school’s domain!!!
