Your family recipe has been locked away safely – and grandma doesn’t remember how to unlock the locks! Luckily, she’s left hints to help remember the codes. If you can find the codes to unlock the lock, your family’s dreams of opening a restaurant will be able to move forward.
In order to play the game, your students will need access to Google sites, Google forms, YouTube, and Jigsawplanet.com – please check your district’s network to make sure that these sites are accessible from your network.
Digital escape games are a fun way to start a unit, or to review at the end of a unit. They can also be used to learn about a cultural or historical event. This game will have your students reading carefully and paying attention to the smallest details in order to complete the challenge and unlock the locks.
This item includes:
- Access to a website where your students can play the game
- Complete teacher’s guide to playing the game
- Answer key so you can help students if they get stuck!
Your students will enjoy learning without even realizing that they are learning! The challenging game format will get them excited about finding the code to unlock each lock – and the format of the clues for each lock will have them paying close attention – there’s no way to solve the puzzles without being 100% focused!
Topics in this game include:
- planning and budgeting for a meal
- reading a menu from a restaurant
- unscrambling vocabulary for a recipe
- watching a video about cooking a French dessert
- Sorting food items into categories
Prep is very easy – you just need to share the website URL with your students. You may want to test the site before you use it, just to make sure nothing is blocked by your district. As some of the clues can be challenging to unlock, you may choose to help your students with the trickier ones. With the teacher guide, you will have the answer key – so you can help guide students towards the correct answer by giving them hints, or if you have limited time, you can adjust the game by reducing the number of locks they need to unlock – just give them the answer(s) to help the activity fit your time constraints.
