German Escape Room for  A Level revision

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?”

Link to “Findet den Maulwurf!” website
Teacher instruction, including how to put together the puzzle items and example pictures
