Consumption: Need or Want?

Consumption: Need or Want?

Students will think about what they encounter and consume in their day-to-day lives, and think about those things in terms of whether they fulfill a ‘need’ or a ‘want’. Students create a list of consumables and categorise them as needs or wants, then make a list of their own needs and wants.

Black History ESCAPE ROOMS BUNDLE: Rosa Parks, MLK, Civil Rights Movement

Black History ESCAPE ROOMS BUNDLE: Rosa Parks, MLK, Civil Rights Movement

The Black History Escape Rooms Bundle will take students on a secret mission around the classroom! The escape rooms have students decode interesting facts about Black History and Civil Rights. This is the perfect resource to introduce the Civil Rights Movement, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., Little Rock Nine or Black History Month. The Black History Escape Rooms Bundle has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on FOUR separate secret missions. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit code based on the decoders/clues. Save 20% with this BUNDLE! You will get FOUR Escape Rooms: 1. Black History #1 2. Rosa Parks 3. Civil Rights Movement 4. Black History #2 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 the Civil Rights Movement or Black History. 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! 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 Black History. Your students will be inspired to think outside the box! The best age range for this resource is 9+. 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. 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. New Feature: The Civil Rights Movement 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” and more! Hang them on your wall, submit to social media or send pictures home :) You can use the signs for any of the included Escape Rooms! An answer key and teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes per Escape Room
