Digital Escape Rooms

Digital Escape Rooms

FREE Digital Escape Rooms

We hope you and your students enjoy these FREE digital escape rooms!  Below you will find links to each escape room along with the locks, answers and explanations. 

If you and your students are new to digital escape rooms it might be fun to try one out as a class so that you can experience it together. After that, you can assign these escape rooms to your students in groups or individually by giving them the direct link to the digital escape room  (they don’t need a special copy). Click on the images for links to the escape rooms.

Here are couple of tips to help you and your students feel successful:

  • Take a look at what lock combinations you are looking for first. 
  • Share the link to the escape room with students, but don’t share this teacher pack!
  • Click everywhere, clues could be hidden inside of text, hyperlinked in an image or multiple links could be hidden inside of an interactive slide or picture.
  • Don’t give up. It’s supposed to be challenging! Those answers are there for you in case you need to give little hints though.
  • Watch this quick video overview of our Halloween Haunt Digital Escape Room to see what a digital escape room looks like.

You will notice that many of these escape rooms are created with Google and Microsoft tools. Some school/districts block Google sites created outside of their domain. However, the escape rooms created with Microsoft tools seem to work.

Still have questions? Take a look at our digital escape rooms FAQs page for answers to our most common questions and if you still have questions email Karly at social@ditchthattextbook.com.
