Printable and Digital Winter-Themed Activities for K-2 Students

Students love playing games in the classroom. That's a fact. If you are like me, who enjoys gamifying the lessons in the classroom, read more, and you might find these escape room games fun for your kindergarten to 2nd graders.

What is a digital escape room?

An escape room is a room in which people are locked inside. To escape, they must solve a series of puzzles within an amount of time to accomplish their goal.

A digital escape room can be more fun for students and teachers because it does not require anything. Students will only need a free Google Slides or Boom Learning account to play and learn at the same time. The great thing about these digital and educational escape rooms is that students can review and practice a specific skill they are studying. The teacher can use the game to assess how students understand the topic.
