This escape adventure explores the wonderful world of animals. Students must work through the included puzzles, which will lead them to reveal four-number or five-letter combinations. These combinations will open corresponding locks, helping them to move on to the next puzzle. We’ve included six puzzles in this escape adventure, which can be presented all at once in a single escape or can be broken up and implemented as supplementary exercises. This puzzle was designed for 3rd-5th grade students.

Zane needs to figure out the names and special needs each animal has before they all arrive. Different animals may need different environments to keep them healthy and happy. Help Zane learn more about these magnificent creatures in the next 60 minutes to save the day!
