Use this fun activity in place of a webquest or notes, prior to reading Ishmael Beah’s memoir A Long Way Gone! Everything is set up for you, including a copy of the editable Google form which houses the "escape room"/breakout, and the additional materials required. Students will work in groups to move through six challenges allowing them to build background regarding Sierra Leone's civil war, child soldiers, and a bit of Ishmael's story!
Note: your students will need access to technology in order to complete the activity! One computer/electronic device per group is enough.
