For secondary History students, a Christmas History themed Escape Room for students. This Digital Escape Room is a great way to have a super fun History Christmas lesson whilst also exploring problem-solving, Communication and Teamwork skills with your Subject Knowledge. The Escape Puzzles are 50% themed to the subject and 50% Christmas fun.
Students will start in the Snowfield and solve puzzles along the way through 7 different rooms (Snowfield, Scarf, Top Hat, Forest, Carrot and Coal, Wrap A present & a final secret Location) As they solve each Christmas themed puzzle they will collect 1 Piece of the Snowman Puzzle and have to solve the Christmas Cypher.
Escape Room is fully editable so you can choose to adapt the vocabulary used. The Escape Rooms are really easy to set up and prepare with our “Teacher step by Step instructions”. We have had many raving 5 star reviews about these fun digital escape rooms.
The Escape room lasts just under an hour depending on how quickly students can solve each puzzle! If a team finishes early don’t worry we have built-in another hidden challenge for them… Students love this style of lesson, great as an educational Christmas treat for your class to end the year and engage them in some fun problem-solving.

Each of the 7Escape Puzzles are uniquely designed by our Lead Christmas Elf
