Digital escape rooms have become one of my favorite activities to share with my students. I love the student engagement that I see with these kind of activities. My students become totally obsessed with solving the digital escape room.
I’m so excited to bring this digital escape room, inspired by The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, to my students again this year. Last spring, I enrolled in a Teachers Pay Teachers Digital Sellers Academy that motivated me to create this resource. This Digital Sellers Academy is an excellent training for teacher-authors looking to create engaging, digital resources.
An engaging narrative sets the stage: students assume the role of Mr. Poole, who needs to locate the antidote to prevent Mr. Hyde from taking over Mr. Jekyll. Along the way, students solve puzzles and locate hidden characters. They also review characters and the chronology of the story, along with learning about Victorian London and 19th Century England.
It’s perfect as a culminating review activity, supplemental activity, or extra credit assignment. The digital escape room includes everything you need to get started, including the directions, narrative, Google Forms, and a jigsaw puzzle.
My students usually spend about 45 minutes completing the digital escape room.
