Industrial Revolution ESCAPE ROOM: Samuel Morse, Henry Ford - Print & Go!

Industrial Revolution ESCAPE ROOM: Samuel Morse, Henry Ford - Print & Go!

The Industrial Revolution Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode interesting facts about the Industrial Revolution. This is the perfect resource to introduce or review inventors, inventions and factory working conditions for Great Britain and the United States. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit code based on the decoders/clues. Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal interesting facts about the Industrial Revolution. Students can report the final code to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! No props needed!! This is a NO PREP, PRINT & GO Activity! Students are sent on a “secret mission” and given a back story to ignite their active learning skills. They are given a code name which makes them feel as if they are part of the secret mission. Playing spy themed music is highly recommended! The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included for differentiation. A “How to Decode” puzzles is also included. In addition to learning or reinforcing the subject matter, my escape rooms encourage teamwork and critical thinking. As a “timed” challenge, students will be engaged from beginning to end. New Feature: This escape room now includes 12 fun, colorful signs to take class pictures with at the end of the mission. Signs include “Puzzle Master”, “She did all the work”, “Genius”, “We did it”, “I Escaped” and more! Hang the pictures in your room, send them in a parent newsletter or share them on social media  An answer key and easy to follow teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes <a href=" https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/vietnam-war-escape-room-no-prep-11806087 “> Vietnam War ESCAPE ROOM!</a> <a href=” https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/growth-mindset-escape-rooms-bundle-4-pack-positive-affirmations-11810597 "> Growth Mindset ESCAPE ROOMS- 4 Pack BUNDLE!</a>
