No Stress Ordering:

  • Nearly everything here is an instant digital download, which means you can download the files as soon as your order is placed. 
  • You’ll also receive an email with the download link(s) so that you can access them anywhere.
  • There are also some courses and subscriptions that come with both digital downloads and virtual content hosted on my webpages. All of the access information will be provided to you. 


Using technology and problem solving skills, students decipher codes and complete activities to learn about the parts of the computer for grades 3-5. The activities are housed in a Google Slides file and students enter their codes into a locked Google Form. If you’ve been wanting to try an escape room or digital breakout with your students, this is a great place to start.

Resource Format

  • This activity can be done in Google Slides or PowerPoint, so it is flexible to meet your technology needs.

Resource Includes:

  • There are 7 codes to find and they require a mix of technology skills, so this makes a great partner or small group activity.
  • Students learn about the parts of the computer by sorting, solving puzzles, doing mazes, etc.
  • Parts inside a computer, a brief computer history, and labeling a web browser.

Info for the teacher to consider:

  • 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.
  • The hints are meant to be used! Most puzzles can’t be solved without taking the hint. It is designed this way on purpose.
  • With this resource you will receive a link to a Google Slides file. From there you can share your copy of the Slides file with your students, or download it as a PowerPoint file to share that way.

    This was a great introduction to the parts of the computer. It was a bit difficult for the 3rd graders to remember all of the parts. I think that I will try it with older students in the future.

  2. Caralee S. (verified owner)

    I’ve used these digital breakouts before and this set has been a great guide for what I need to teach. My students have loved breakouts in the past so when I’m done teaching the concepts, I will use the breakout as an assessment tool!

  3. Leigh S. (verified owner)

    This was a great resource to review computer terms. My students enjoy these activities, especially working with a partner or in a small group.

  4. Caitlin S. (verified owner)

    This was a great review for students over hardware and software. It was also a great resource for me to make sure I was teaching this correctly as I am new to this position. Thank you!

    I used this with my Computer Club students. They had a great time working together to solve all the clues.
