THE NOTICE & NOTE PRODUCT IS PRESENTED IN TWO FORMATS:

The ESCAPE ROOM is designed to be used after reading the novel BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE by Kate DiCamillo. It assesses students’ knowledge of major story events (Task #1), characters (Task #2), vocabulary (Task #3), and theme (Task #4 with the Quote Reflection) through the use of 4 coded stations. This product also allows students to reflect on themselves as learners (Escape Room Reflection).
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: Retrieving clues in the previous stations, students work to decipher a secret message related to the text.
