Digital Escape Room for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Sea Turtles

Sea Turtle Digital Escape Room for Distance Learning

 

Have you heard of a digital escape room?

Students will read informational text and solve the puzzles for five breakout codes in order to ESCAPE!
 
This resource is a digital Escape Room with a science literacy connection. It can be used for Distance Learning and Online Learning! 
 
Students will use reading informational text skills as they learn about sea turtles. This resource is digital and self-checking. Students won’t be able to escape the room unless they have the correct answers. Incorrect codes are prompted to Try again!
 
Really no prep for teachers!  Just share the link. Great for remote learning. Works great with google classroom, but can also be shared with just a link. Great for independent work! Great for Earth Day, conservation or environmental reading
 

It’s a new and engaging way for students to learn!

 

Check out this video to see exactly how it works:

 
 

 

This totally paperless activity is a fun way for your elementary class to learn about sea turtles!  

Try this free digital escape room to see if you like them.

 
Here’s how it works:
 
Your class will uncover a set of secret codes by navigating through a series of informational text passages with comprehension questions along with interactive drag-and-drop activities.
 
If the student answers all questions correctly, the codes will allow them to “escape” from the activity.
 

Digital escape rooms are perfect for distance learning or a homeschooling parent!

 
It works great with Google Classroom, but can also be shared with a simple link.  Anyone can use it as long as they have an internet-connected device!
 
The step-by-step instructions make it EASY to use!
 

Questions are listed before the text passages to help students learn and practice “pre-reading” skills.

 
Skills such as asking questions before reading, making predictions based on the questions, and referring back to the text for evidence are necessary skills for any elementary student to learn.
 
This is a science literacy unit.  Think of it as a reading unit with a science topic.  It’s hard to find informational text passages that are interesting but also rich in scientific information.  
 
That’s why I created this activity!  To give students an engaging way to interact with one of nature’s majestic creatures.
 
If you want to try a fun and unique way for your 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th-grade students to learn about sea turtles, this digital escape room is perfect for you!

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
