Make learning about the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris interesting with this no-prep digital escape game.  The game includes access to a website where your students will hunt for the keys to unlock a set of locks.  Students will need to read the clues very carefully and watch videos, visit websites, and read texts to find the information they need to win the game.  Very easy to use – just send your students to the website and let them work!  Students can play individually or in teams.


Digital escape games are a fun way to start a unit, or to review at the end of a unit.  They can also be used to learn about a cultural or historical event.  This game will have your students reading carefully and paying attention to the smallest details in order to complete the challenge and unlock the locks.


This item includes:

  • Access to a website where your students can play the game
  • Complete teacher’s guide to playing the game
  • Answer key so you can help students if they get stuck!


Your students will enjoy learning without even realizing that they are learning!  The challenging game format will get them excited about finding the code to unlock each lock – and the format of the clues for each lock will have them paying close attention – there’s no way to solve the puzzles without being 100% focused!


Topics in this game include:

  • The bees of Notre Dame
  • the relics
  • The stained glass windows
  • the bells
  • the history of the cathedral


The game includes two versions – a French version and an English version. In both versions, the clues are given in English (otherwise it would be too difficult for French learners to pick up the nuances in the clues). In the French version, the clue pages will lead to sources written in French. In the English version, the clue pages lead to English language sources.

$3 from each sale of this game will go to the Friends of Notre-Dame, a foundation working to rebuild and renovate the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris.
