Berlin Wall Escape Room

Berlin Wall Escape Room

Let history come to life with an escape room lesson! Get students to puzzle their way through the history of the Berlin Wall, trying to stay in touch with their long lost friend Thomas on the other side of the wall. Engage students with a story website that will require them to work through a mix of text, video, jigsaw puzzles, codes and crossword puzzles to find their friend (and claim a prize?). This resource can be used as a revision lesson on the topic of the Berlin Wall or, with some internet research by the students, as a first introduction to the topic. It should take between 45 min and 2 hours, depending on age and prior knowledge. Little preparation by the teacher except for printing (if you choose the digital version of the jigsaw puzzle). As a native of Berlin I have been teaching this topic as part of my German lessons for about 10 years now. On the 3rd October, German national day, all my classes (aged 13-18) get a one lesson run through of the history of the wall and students are always fascinated by it. The topics covered here are: • the situation of Germany under the occupation of the allies after the war • the differences between East and West • why people escaped to the West • the building of the wall • what is the Stasi • what lead to the fall of the wall • what happened on the 9th of November 1989 Includes: • link to dedicated story website • documents, excel and powerpoint files • puzzles • lesson plan • answers I have also included a powerpoint presentation of statistics showing the present-day differences between former East and West Germany and a collection of my favourite youtube videos on the topic.

History Revision - Taboo Game

History Revision - Taboo Game

Want to make your history revision effective and fun? Why not try playing History taboo with them! This resource contains 100 slides/cards that follow the normal rules for Taboo (I have included these on one of the first slides). The game covers the following four units: -Medicine Through Time -Nazi Germany -Cold War -Norman and Anglo Saxons There are 25 cards/slides for each unit, but you can easily add more. To make it is easier for you to edit I have grouped all the slides together for each unit (when I play the game with my class I mix all the units up). You can play this game on the powerpoint with the whole class, or you can print off the slides and get them to play in small groups. Both work well. This game is incredibly well received by both students and teachers. An effective and popular revision tool to make those end of course lessons a bit more fun! Hope you find this useful.
