Students will review comma rules with these task cards that ask students to determine the locations of commas in 80 sentences and unscramble a secret phrase to escape the room.
This product IS included in my escape room bundle:
Secondary English Escape Room Bundle
and my punctuation bundle:
High School Punctuation Bundle
Your download includes
* 80 sentences for comma practice on 20 task cards
* one practice task card to model for students how to fill in answer code
* teacher & student instructions for Google and non-Google (non-electronic) facilitation
* answer key for codes and secret phrases if teacher-led
* teacher tips page
* link to video instructions
* four different Google forms with four different secret phrases
* a page of suggestions on how to facilitate the escape room should students not complete the activity in one class period
In the Google-led facilitation (a quicker version), students input answers into a Google Form and are automatically told if their code is correct for each card and awarded a letter toward the secret phrase. There are four different Google forms that receive the same numeric codes but four different “secret phrases.”
In teacher-led facilitation (a lengthier version that requires no electronics), teachers will check answers for students and award letters toward the secret phrase.
Students will review serial commas, adjectives of equal rank, coordinating conjunctions, interrupters, introductory information, and non-essential phrases and clauses.￼ Note that students should have already learned the rules for commas before playing the escape room as this is meant to be a review activity.
This product is geared toward students in grades 9-12 as the sentences are challenging. Facilitation of the game (from me giving instructions to the first group solving the secret phrase) takes anywhere from 45-60 minutes.
✭ I believe in making products that ensure students understand rules and conventions. This escape room is challenging because it requires students to think critically about commas and apply comma rules, rather than simply have fun. This escape room is the best of both worlds — challenging and fun!
