Confucius or some really smart person said, "Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and you've fed him for a lifetime" (or something like that). Today, we're taking that quote to heart. That is why we don't just want to give you a couple digital escape rooms, we want to TEACH YOU how to make your own!
How can you use digital escape rooms to help students dig into new content? We've included 3 examples in this product. The first is the Jillpavich.com example. This one is for you to see how you might use digital escape rooms to introduce new content. The other two escape rooms (Grammar + Characterization) cover basic ELA skills and are ready for you to implement into your classroom today!
This is an example we made to introduce our new followers to our content. It is a great example for teachers who want to use escape rooms to introduce new content. This example is not intended for use with students, but teachers can work their way through the example to see how a student might experience a similar room.
Complete with printable CLUE cards, a sheet for notes and a video walkthrough, this example is ready for use with students. Using the Rainbow as a clue, this grammar escape room covers basic grammar skills like contractions, commonly misspelled words, and grammar vocabulary.
This Characterization Digital Escape Room is also set up for immediate teacher/student use. Just like the grammar room, this escape room has a sheet for notes, CLUE cards, and we've provided a video walkthrough, so you know how to help your students.
