TEACHERS LIKE YOU SAID…
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Shannon said, “This is the perfect culminating activity for students after reading the book! My students loved participating in this escape room!”
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jordan said, “My students loved completing this escape room after they finished our novel study! It was challenging, so I gave them hints as needed. Thank you for sharing!”

You must be able to access Google Sites created by users outside of your district for this escape room to work!
If your students cannot open the site or the tasks embedded, you will need to ask your IT department to grant permission.
I recommend taking 10-15 minutes to work through the Holes escape room on your ownbefore assigning it to students. This gives you time to troubleshoot or work through kinks without pressure.
I’ve also included an 8-minute video walk-through of the tasks to help you be successful.
