Test Taking Strategies Escape Room - No Prep!

Test Taking Strategies Escape Room - No Prep!

The Test-Taking Strategies Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode universal testing tips for any subject. Some of the strategies include: get a good night’s sleep, underline or circle keywords, use process of elimination, show your work for math, eat a good breakfast, double check your work, take your time, flag difficult questions and move on and many more. They are more detailed in the lesson. Sometimes students just need a day of motivation! Maybe it’s before a big state test or maybe it’s just a fun reminder. Maybe it’s just the right activity to do with them to encourage their journeys. The Test-Taking Strategies Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on a secret mission to help Joshua unlock the hidden strategies! The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit lock combination 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 multiple in-depth testing strategies. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final 4 digit combination. No props needed!! Students can report the final lock combination to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! 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 is included. An answer key and teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes A 30 page PDF is included.
