The United Nations

The United Nations

After the atrocities of the Second World War (millions of Jews were killed and many others) some countries got together and decided that something like that could not happen again. They formed the United Nations. The United Nations drew up a list of basic Human Rights (1948) that everyone should be entitled to – this is called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These worksheets help the students to discuss what they consider essential to living and compare their thoughts to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. In addition they look in detail at the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and discuss whose responsibility it is to uphold these

9 Civics and Government Escape Rooms BUNDLE: 9 No Prep Activities!

9 Civics and Government Escape Rooms BUNDLE: 9 No Prep Activities!

Looking for NO PREP, engaging activities to cover a variety of Civics and Government topics? Want a way to make the Articles of Confederation or the Declaration of Independence a blast for the class? This resource includes 9 Civics and Government Escape Rooms: Citizenship and Naturalization Preamble Escape Room Bill of Rights Escape Room Founding Fathers Escape Room Branches of Government Escape Room Declaration of Independence Escape Room Articles of Confederation Escape Room Supreme Court Civil Rights Movement This 9 pack bundle of Civics and Government related Escape Rooms will take students on 9 separate secret missions around the classroom! Each escape room has students decode interesting facts about the Preamble, the Declaration, Bill of Rights, Founding Fathers, Branches of Government and more!. This is the perfect resource to introduce the civics topic or to review the topics. Each Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given 9 different secret code names and sent on 9 separate secret missions. 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 are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal facts related to the topic. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final code. 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!! Each room is a NO PREP, PRINT & GO Activity! Students are sent on 9 separate “secret missions” and given a different 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. Students practice hands-on, practical problem solving skills all while learning about various Civics topics. Your students will be inspired to think outside the box! The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes. 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. 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. An answer key and teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes per room
