Take your students on an archaeological adventure as they collaborate to complete five tasks in an escape room-style experience! It's print and go - no locks or extra supplies needed to prepare for the activity.
The purpose of the activity is to teach students about the daily lives of the ancient Israelites - including their housing, writing, work, food and religion. The best part? Your students will be 100% engaged in digging through the content to decipher clues about the past.
The adventure begins when small groups of archaeologists (your students) are tasked with completing research for a professor, Dr. Anderson. They'll read informational texts, solve puzzles and play games that integrate content and fun in a seamless way.
A brief writing activity at the end allows for an easy way to individually assess students' understanding of the content.
There are three files included in this download: a color version of the activity (21 pages), a black/white version of the activity (21 pages) and a Teacher Kit filled with information about each task and answer keys (12 pages)
