Using technology and problem solving skills, students decipher codes and complete activities to learn the internet safety topic of privacy and security. This is a great activity to introduce students to the escape the classroom challenges, and it is fully digital! I’m calling it a digital breakout because students enter the final codes into a locked Google Form.
This activity can be done in Google Slides or PowerPoint, so it is flexible to meet your technology needs.
There are 6 codes to find and they require a mix of skills, so this makes a great partner or small group activity.
Internet Safety Topics
• Private vs Personal information
• Strong Passwords
• Online Friends
Most groups should be able to complete it in 30-45 minutes.
If this is your first digital breakout then I recommend solving the puzzles as a whole group activity.

My students love this breakout room! It’s definitely a bit tricky but that makes it perfect for the upper grades because it takes them more time- they can’t just rush through it.

I really enjoyed this resource; as did my 5th graders. This was my first time using a resource like this so there was a learning curve but once I figured everything out it was great. Students had a lot of fun with it.

I love that you took something so important, but sometimes boring for students (internet safety) and made it into an exciting activity. Thanks!

This is a great resource to use (especially for early finishers). I have used it both as an early finisher and as a task to practice using the digital tools on the crossword and typing in text boxes. Many students were confused at first, but I helped them figure out what they needed to do to solve the problems.

This is a great resource. It is easy to follow and it is teaching the students the skills necessary to achieve in the digital world. This was a great review for my students and I could break up the lesson to support my students that needed more time
