Growth Mindset Escape Room - No Prep!

(0)
The Growth Mindset Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode inspirational quotes from famous figures about growth mindset. Students will learn facts and quotes from Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Martin Luther King Jr. and Walt Disney. The Growth Mindset Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on a secret mission to save Milly’s math grade! 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 an inspirational quote from a famous figure about growth mindset. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final ID code. No props needed!! Students can report the final ID code to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! 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. Students practice hands-on, practical problem solving skills all while learning about growth mindset. 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. The availability of two sets of codes offers differentiation for your learners. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included. Once your students try one of my escape rooms, they will beg for more! This activity is for all types of learners, especially kinesthetic. 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 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 

Word Puzzle Escape Room Activity

(1)
Teams work together to solve the puzzles using critical thinking skills to discover a four-digit code to open the lock. You can use an actual lock with a number combination to give it more of an escape room feel, but it is not required. After each correctly completed puzzle, teams submit their solutions to the Key Master (teacher) to receive a key with a code word on it. After collecting all four keys, teams unscramble the words for a final instruction/clue to crack the combination. This is a fun activity that will get your students thinking and working together. It is especially great for upper level ESL students to get them talking and they will probably even learn new vocabulary in the process. This is great as an ice breaker, before or after a school break, or any time you want to mix things up and give your students a fun break while also encouraging critical thinking. Although it is not directly related to Halloween, the theme of escape rooms would be perfect to use around Halloween also. This activity does not involve a lot of pieces or complicated setup, so this is a perfect option if you want a fun escape activity that is relatively low prep. This resource contains the following: 1. Teacher instructions and notes 2. Student instructions and key/code recording sheet 3. Series of four puzzles/challenges for students to complete: * Riddle Puzzles (hink pinks and hinky pinkies). Teams work to find two-word rhyming answers to the clues. *Pictogram: Teams find the hidden message by solving the pictogram puzzles. From the given pictures, letters are added, subtracted, or replaced to reveal words from the message. *Cryptogram puzzle: Teams work to decipher the message that will also help them figure out the final code. Three versions are included so you can choose the appropriate level of difficulty. *Logic Puzzle: Teams work together to figure out the solution to the puzzle about guests escaping a haunted castle. 4. Color-coded keys to distribute to teams after each correct puzzle 5. Answer keys

German Escape Room for A Level revision

(2)
A lesson that your students will not forget quickly! A spy themed escape room activity in which students need to do German language related puzzles to get a code to jump from one website to the next in search of the “mole” . Ideal as vocab and grammar revision for year 12 or year 13 for AQA German AS/A Level (based on the Hodder text book). Will keep them focused even in the last lesson before the holidays! It includes vocab from the topics celebrations, digital world, architecture and Berlin. There is a “digital only” version and a" digital+paper" version. The “digital+paper” version is more fun because it involves the game website and real life puzzles ( jigsaws, code wheels and string activities) that make the activities more “real”, but requires quite a bit of preparation by the teacher. The “digital only” version only requires two print outs and a little bit of taping and can be done last minute. Comments from my 6th form students: “This is intense!” “This was the best lesson I’ve had in some time!” “Can we do another one soon?” The resource includes: Link to “Findet den Maulwurf!” website Teacher instruction, including how to put together the puzzle items and example pictures Teacher answers Powerpoint with game introduction Puzzles to print out/Files for digital versions

Berlin Wall Escape Room

Let history come to life with an escape room lesson! Get students to puzzle their way through the history of the Berlin Wall, trying to stay in touch with their long lost friend Thomas on the other side of the wall. Engage students with a story website that will require them to work through a mix of text, video, jigsaw puzzles, codes and crossword puzzles to find their friend (and claim a prize?). This resource can be used as a revision lesson on the topic of the Berlin Wall or, with some internet research by the students, as a first introduction to the topic. It should take between 45 min and 2 hours, depending on age and prior knowledge. Little preparation by the teacher except for printing (if you choose the digital version of the jigsaw puzzle). As a native of Berlin I have been teaching this topic as part of my German lessons for about 10 years now. On the 3rd October, German national day, all my classes (aged 13-18) get a one lesson run through of the history of the wall and students are always fascinated by it. The topics covered here are: • the situation of Germany under the occupation of the allies after the war • the differences between East and West • why people escaped to the West • the building of the wall • what is the Stasi • what led to the fall of the wall • what happened on the 9th of November 1989 Includes: • link to dedicated story website • documents, excel and powerpoint files • puzzles • lesson plan • answers I have also included a powerpoint presentation of statistics showing the present-day differences between former East and West Germany and a collection of my favourite youtube videos on the topic.

Escape Room activity - French Revolution

(1)
This was a very low tech escape room activity. I printed off slides 1 (key words), slides 4-7 for students (2 slides per page!). The locations are on the final slide. I hid the first code cracker under a beret on an unused desk, the next clue under a guillotine by our fire exit and the third (pair of codes) under a toy crown on my classroom shelves. As I didn’t have a suitable box I could padlock, I used a cardboard wallet, holepunched it and put the padlocks through the holes on there. I used one padlock with a 3 digit code (187 - slide 8 for the questions) and a key padlock. On the wallet, I wrote in French that they had to prove to me they had complete all activities. I gave prizes to the students to open the padlock first. I did this with an able Y10 group (small class) and it took virtually a double lesson (100 minutes). Please message me if you have any questions.
