Create Your Own Digital Escape Room With Flippity Scavenger Hunt

Are you familiar with Flippity? It's one of my favorite ways to use Google Sheets. You can easily turn Sheets into flashcards, hangman, match games, board games, scavenger hunts and more. It's also a great productivity tool for teachers with the random name selector, certificate maker, and progress indicator. In this post, I'll show you how to Make Your Own Digital Escape Room With Flippity Scavenger Hunt

Every teacher needs to know about Flippity. I've always encouraged teachers to use templates and Flippity has a huge selection. They make your life so much easier and you aren't reinventing the wheel. With Flippity, the templates are already created and then you can personalize them for your needs. Earlier, Flippity was a Google Ad-On. Because Google could no longer keep Flippity running properly, it is now a stand-alone website.
