Save time and money with this awesome HELLO, UNIVERSE BUNDLE!
In this student-centered bundle you’ll find:
♦ a Hello, Universe NOVEL STUDY designed with only text-dependent questions for deep inquiry!
♦ a super fun, Hello, Universe ESCAPE ROOM, perfect as a culminating collaborative activity!
The no-prep NOVEL STUDY approaches the award-winning text, Hello, Universe, strictly through a text-dependent reading lens. The questions in this novel study move fluidly among 4 levels to give students a robust, deep understanding of the text.
The ESCAPE ROOM is designed to be used AFTER reading the award-winning novel, HELLO, UNIVERSE, by Erin Entrada Kelly. It assesses students’ knowledge of major story events (Task #1), characters (Task #2), vocabulary (Task #3), figurative language (Task #4), and theme (Task #5 with the Quote Reflection) through the use of 5 coded stations. This product also allows students to reflect on themselves as learners (Escape Room Reflection). Students should have an understanding of figurative language (simile, metaphor, hyperbole, and personification) for Task 4.

How the ESCAPE ROOM Works:
→ Station 1: Students sort through Plot Cards to determine which events actually occurred in the text and put them in plot order. Doing so will reveal a hidden code.
→ Station 2: Students match characters to distinct character descriptions to reveal a hidden code.
→ Station 3: Students match vocabulary words extracted from the text to their respective definitions in order to reveal a hidden code.
→ Station 4: Students identify the figurative language technique being used to reveal a code.
→ Station 5: Retrieving clues in the previous stations, students work to decipher a secret message related to the text.
