St. Patrick's Day Fun with Digital Resources

Digital escape rooms are all the rage and I finally took the leap and made one. I think it was really worth the time it took me to learn how to make it because the kids went bonkers for it. I flat out asked them if they liked it and they shouted 'YES' with enthusiasm. LOL That's what I like to hear!

Escape Rooms or some call them breakouts are usually made for small groups of students to work together to solve the mystery. The kids worked together at their tables, but they wanted to each have their own computer to work on. I don't have a problem with that!

I gave each student a planning sheet to use to write their codes on. I would say about half the kids used the planning page, but the other kids just went back to the main page on Google Sites and recorded their answers.







For the early finishers, I made sure they knew what they could work on while the rest of the students finished their adventure. Once everyone had a chance to find their way to Lucky the Leprechaun's party, we celebrated with little lucky lollies! (suckers)



This first digital escape room is called The Case of the St. Patrick's Day Party just in time for St. Patrick's Day. I hope you decide to check it out!

AND, if you are a math mystery fan, I've begun making my math mysteries digital! Fun, right?! Since it is March, I started with The Case of the Mixed-Up March Madness for Third Grade.



Thanks for stopping by!
