Students are going to LOVE this digital game for context clues practice! This game was created using Genially and can be accessed on any device with a web-browser. Users do not need to sign-in to an account in order to play the game. This includes the teacher who will assign this game via a single link.

This resource downloads as a PDF file that contains the link to the digital game. Teachers will not have access to performance reports but will know students have successfully completed the questions when they correctly solve the final mission. (You can always ask the students to send/post a screenshot of the Congratulations screen)

The video game theme will instantly grab students’ attention! Students will complete 4 missions in which they solve a variety of questions that require them to use context clues. Each level increases in difficulty of vocabulary words used. If you are looking for a similar game for younger students who are in the beginning stages of understanding how to figure out the meaning of vocabulary words using context, check out this DIGITAL CONTEXT CLUES GAME FOR 2nd & 3rd grade.

Level 1: Words used in context: detest, pudgy, fascinated, concealed, and tranquil.

Level 2: Words used in context: pedestrians, obsolete, palatial, vivid, and plethora.

Level 3: Words used in context: amusing, instigates, lofty, diverted, and candid.

Level 4: Words used in context: amicable, capricious and distinctive.

At the successful completion of each level, students receive a secret number. They will need to write these numbers down. Once all 4 missions have been completed, students enter the 4 secret numbers on the final mission screen. If correct, they will have successfully completed the breakout and will be congratulated.

You can share this resource with students in various ways since it comes as a single link. The 3rd page of the PDF download will show you how you can share straight to Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams right from the Genially. Feel free to post the link on your server, LMS, class website, etc. as long as your students are the only ones to access it. This download is for a single classroom license.

Check out the preview to see this in action (turn up your volume for the full effect!)
