Women's Suffrage ESCAPE ROOM: U.S. History - Voting Rights- Print & Go!

Women's Suffrage ESCAPE ROOM: U.S. History - Voting Rights- Print & Go!

The Women’s Suffrage Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode interesting facts about Women’s suffrage in the United States. This is the perfect resource to introduce or review the 19th Amendment or Susan B. Anthony. 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. 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. The best age range for this resource is 9+. 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! An answer key and easy to follow teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes »»»<strong> Women in History ESCAPE ROOMS:</strong> <a href=" https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/women-in-history-escape-room-set-1-no-prep-11806097 “>Women in History ESCAPE ROOM!

Gender equality: year of the woman

Gender equality: year of the woman

It’s been 100 years since some women got the vote in the UK. This year, hundreds of famous entertainers have launched a campaign against the harassment of women. The campaign, called ‘Time’s Up’, is a reminder that women are still sometimes mistreated simply because they are female. This 6-session scheme of work explores barriers that women face both in and out of the workplace and asks questions which encourage all genders to consider how they and society are affected by this issue. There is also an additional optional session covering sexual harassment. Use these fully-planned, interactive and multi-media resources to develop your student’s critical thinking and literacy skills and to embed cognitively challenging conversations in your classrooms.
