***Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need physical locks? No. This all digital so there is no prep.
How long will this take? Plan for about 45 minutes on average and adjust for grade level and ability.
What browser do I need? Your students will need access to Google and a Google account.
How do students access the activities? They will click on the cards and then make their own copy of each slide. They will get their combination for each lock from the slide and enter it into the form next to the cards.
What devices do I need? It will work with desktops, laptops, tablets and most phones.
Can I embed this in Google Classroom? No. However, you can out from it. It will not show results in Google Classroom.
How can I grade the activity? You will not be able to see responses on the form. If your students are working remotely and you want to give a completion grade, an idea would be to have them send you a screenshot of the ‘Congratulations Message’ at the end. I have also included an optional printable answer sheet as well.
All required components are through Google except for the follow up puzzle game. The puzzle is through Jigsaw Planet. It is intended to provide students with a fun activity if they finish the breakout with extra time left. It is not a requirement for the breakout. Jigsaw Planet may be blocked through your school's firewall, so you may want to make sure you can access it before purchasing. Please view the preview video for a short demo of the activities included in this product.
Thank you so much for your consideration! I hope this activity will haunt your classroom pleasantly :)
