Escape games can be fun, but if you don’t have the kit with locks, they can be tricky to do. Here’s a completely digital escape game – no/low prep, you just need to make sure that your students have access to Google Sites!
This game is about the city of Paris. It visits the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Conciergerie, Louvre and Arc de Triomphe. Your students will have fun learning about the various historical monuments and attractions while enjoying a competitive game. The game itself is in English, but if you want to use the activity with more advanced French language learners, you can ask them to use the French version of the official websites (just click on the link on each website).
Be aware that escape games are meant to be challenging – your students will have to work together, read the clues carefully, and be willing to take risks in order to crack the codes. The teacher’s guide includes all of the information and hints you need to help students who get lost along the way.
