This week, I want to suggest you let your students design an escape room.

Escape rooms are, in the iconic words of Zoolander, so hot right now. And they have been for years. Students love them! Who wouldn’t want to learn while exploring mysterious clues and piecing together puzzles? 

The problem is, they take a little bit of forever to create. We’ve already talked about this quite a bit on the podcast! 

But you know what they say (and yes, it’s based on the research), students elevate their learning when they teach.

So why not turn things around and have the students design the escape rooms? They’ll have to thoroughly understand the material they’re trying to share in order to embed it into clues and puzzles for their peers.

I’ve created a digital template your students can customize to create their own escape rooms on any subject matter you want them to teach each other. Just follow the link in the show notes to pick up this free resource.

Escape rooms are a flexible and fun way to learn, so that’s why this week I want to highly recommend you give them a try, with your creative students leading the way!
