This breakout box is 100% paperless, completely interactive, and ready to play straight away! Are you looking for an engaging, challenging lesson that requires zero prep? Look no further! This escape lesson is for you. In this interactive revision game, students take on the role of a timecop who travels back in time to save the play from the hands of a rogue AI. Their objective is to discover what actually happened in these stories, then report back to the future. Students will revise the plot timeline, answer main character riddles, solve puzzles, analyse language techniques and do a close reading of Romeo’s soliloquy in the tomb. But beware! If students make too many mistakes their mission will fail and the past will be lost forever. Students race against each other to complete all the tasks and puzzles first. They can work on this individually or in groups sharing a device between them- simply share the link in your product file with your students! What’s included: 12 draggable plot elements (students have to drag the timeline into the correct order to discover the code to the next level) 2 visual puzzles: (a sliding puzzle where students evaluate the Friar’s attitude to the wedding.

I make fun educational games to inspire students and make education more fun for teachers too. I do this because I noticed that education these days is more challenging than ever - if you’ve ever seen a tired teacher or a bored millennial, you’ll know what I mean! More and more students are disengaged in the classroom, but curriculum and distance learning demands mean that many of us teachers are struggling to stay above water, let alone find the time to come up with new ideas for learning. My aim is to empower teachers with digital games that hook students on learning that is fun AND meaningful. My resources are simple to use, but highly interactive and challenging to engage even your most reluctant students. I wanted these resources to be something a teenage boy might be interested in, and something really easy to use within existing platforms too (think Google classroom or Zoom, etc.) - simply your students a link and they’re good to go. The best part is that everything works in the browser, which means you can spend less time being the class tech support, and more time teaching. So whether you’re a time-poor teacher, a parent juggling a job while home-schooling, or a student looking to level up your skills… GameWise can help cure your distance learning headaches, free up your day, and reignite your school experience. So go GameWise, and make your learning fun. How did I do? Too cheesy? ;P CONNECT WITH ME Gil’s GameWise Blog – Discuss gamification! Facebook – Share your success stories!

WHAT YOU GET: • 10 Alliteration task cards (the main focus of this deck) • 5 Onomatopoeia task cards • 5 Metaphors task cards • A slide with technique definitions and examples (for students to refer back to) Students will love how fun and intuitive this game is - simply drag phrases on to each monster to battle it. The fun graphics and funny phrases engage reluctant students, and their recall is improved by associating each language technique with a SPECIFIC character. For example, Awesome Archers link to Alliteration, Slurping Snails link to Onomatopoeia, and Loose Cannon Monkeys link to Metaphors. This association means that your students will have a better chance of remembering each one - “Oh that’s right, Alliteration defeated Al the Awesome Archer and it was language which had repeated sounds close together…” Help your students level up their language skills and have fun at the same time.

ABOUT ME Hi I’m Gil, the teacher behind GameWise. I make fun educational games to inspire students and make education more fun for teachers too. I do this because I noticed that education these days is more challenging than ever - if you’ve ever seen a tired teacher or a bored millennial, you’ll know what I mean! More and more students are disengaged in the classroom, but curriculum and distance learning demands mean that many of us teachers are struggling to stay above water, let alone find the time to come up with new ideas for learning. My aim is to empower teachers with digital games that hook students on learning that is fun AND meaningful. My resources are simple to use, but highly interactive and challenging to engage even your most reluctant students. I wanted these resources to be something a teenage boy might be interested in, and something really easy to use within existing platforms too (think Google classroom or Zoom, etc.) - simply your students a link and they’re good to go. The best part is that everything works in the browser, which means you can spend less time being the class tech support, and more time teaching. So whether you’re a time-poor teacher, a parent juggling a job while home-schooling, or a student looking to level up your skills… GameWise can help cure your distance learning headaches, free up your day, and reignite your school experience. So go GameWise, and make your learning fun. How did I do? Too cheesy? ;P CONNECT WITH ME Gil’s GameWise Blog – Discuss gamification! Facebook – Share your success stories!
