Emancipation Proclamation ESCAPE ROOM: Abraham Lincoln, Civil War

Emancipation Proclamation ESCAPE ROOM: Abraham Lincoln, Civil War

Emancipation Proclamation Escape Room Activity: The Emancipation Proclamation Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode interesting facts about the Emancipation Proclamation, Abraham Lincoln, slavery and the Civil War. This is the perfect resource to introduce a famous historical executive order in a fun way! The Emancipation Proclamation Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. 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 interesting facts or an analysis about the Emancipation Proclamation. 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!! This is a NO PREP, PRINT & GO Activity! 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 for differentiation. A “How to Decode” puzzles is also included. As a “timed” challenge, students will be engaged from beginning to end. This escape room 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 New Feature: I have included a 6 question formative to complete as proof of understanding. Each “clue” also has one question to answer to ensure comprehension for a total of 10 questions. Many times students rush to solve the puzzles without reading or comprehending what they read. The questions need to be answered correctly before they can win!

Should teachers be armed? A persuasive writing scheme

Should teachers be armed? A persuasive writing scheme

This is a scheme designed for KS4 and Yr 9. It is a chance for them to expand their knowledge of a relevant topic as well as develop their AQA English Language skills. The final task will be for the class to draft, edit and improve upon a letter to the head teacher regarding guns in the classroom. This is suitable for any exam board but tailored to the AQA spec. It is an issue that engages all students of every ability and can easily be differentiated up or down depending on class. The scheme is designed to last for one week (5 lessons) but can be stretched further if needs be. There are opportunities for green pen activities as well as further research and debate on this topical issue.

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
