Veterans Day Escape Room: U.S History

The Veterans Day Escape Room will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! This escape room has students decode facts about the history of Veterans Day. Many students know they have a day off from school…but do they know why? Do they really know what Veterans Day means? Do they understand the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day? Sometimes students just need a day of movement around the room! The Veterans Day Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on a secret mission to retrieve the Veterans Day wreath! 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 interesting facts about Veterans Day. 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 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

Identifying the Traits of Heroes - Veteran's Day or Patriot Day LessonQuick View

Identifying the Traits of Heroes - Veteran's Day or Patriot Day Lesson

The “Qualities of a Hero” project focuses on recognizing important values in everyday life and individuals. It also allows students to creatively utilize technology to express their ideas. Students start the project with a whole class discussion on heroism, which can include video presentations (see the teacher resources). They work with a team to identify and classify different individuals who might be considered heroes. An additional organizer is included to extend this activity to identifying hero qualities with their group, or the organizer can be used later in the individual lesson. Finally, students research a hero of choice and create an online poster which also includes the qualities they identified incorporated into a Wordle word-web collage. This lesson was created to use for Patriot Day 9/11 to showcase how a disaster can bring out the best in people who react as heroes, but is a great value lesson for anytime! Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher Notes and Resources (includes extension activities) • Team Brainstorming Worksheet • Team (or individual) Hero Qualities graphic organizer • Research and Poster Project Expectations and Rubric I've used this lesson with 7th and 8th graders and really enjoyed hearing some of the conclusions they drew about important life values. I hope your students enjoy it!
Digital/ Non-Digital Veterans Day Escape Room with Informational TextQuick View

Digital/ Non-Digital Veterans Day Escape Room with Informational Text

Escape rooms harness the natural competitive nature of middle-school students to encourage them to work cooperatively and to use critical thinking and comprehension skills to complete a series of tasks which allow them to succeed. This product features four puzzles that must be solved to “escape”. One puzzle is simply an informational text about Veterans Day, along with comprehension questions. There is also another brief reading passage that contains clues for a second lock. The third lock requires students to unscramble letters to make three words that have to do with Veterans Day. The fourth puzzle requires students to do a little research and reasoning to correctly order seven American wars. The product gives both digital and non-digital options, or a combination of both. To use the digital version, students (or each group of students) need access to a device that has Internet capabilities. The teacher gives students a link to a private website that requires them to read and search for clues to unlock four different types of locks. The non-digital option allows the teacher to print out the reading passage and puzzles and give one set to each student, or each group of students. The students can then go to the website to enter their answers, or simply write the lock codes down on their response sheet for easy checking. The packet also includes an optional certificate that can be given to successful students.

There are 34 different holiday brag tags. Each brag tag measures 2 inches high by a little over an inch wide. These are best when printed in color, I have tried to provide options as I know that some of the tags are ink heavy. If you like this product and have a suggestion for a different brag tag, I'm more than happy to add it. Students in my classroom keep their brag tags on a chain, but you could use ribbon or yarn as well. I let them wear them on the day that they have earned the tag and the tags stay in school until the end of the year at which point they can take them home. They are so proud of their accomplishments and can't wait to wear these throughout the school so they can show off what they have achieved!
