U.S. History Escape Rooms Bundle Part 1
With each U.S. History Escape Room, students are in the process of time traveling back in time to study the people and events of U.S. History when their time machine malfunctions! The only way to repair the time machine and return to the present is for students to successfully complete several challenges that enable them to review important information and standards about past events in American history. These U.S. History escape rooms are a great way to engage students and to get them up and moving.
