Students will use technology and problem-solving skills to complete this digital breakout after learning about different types of reference materials (atlas, almanac, encyclopedia, online encyclopedia, dictionary, thesaurus). This is a very broad review of these reference materials. I plan to make more detailed breakouts for each of these reference materials soon.
This breakout is completed with Google sites. Please make sure that Google sites is not blocked on your school computers. By using Google sites there is very little preparation that needs to be done to use this with your students.
What you need to use this breakout:
Chromebooks, computers, laptops or some type of mobile device. You will need one device for each team. I recommend teams of 2-3 students if possible. The devices must be connected to the internet. A free Google account for you and your students. Scratch paper for students to write down the lock codes while they are working.
What is included:
The breakout is accessed through a Google Site. Students will go to the url for the site to complete the breakout. On the Google Site is the scenario, student directions, links to each of the 3 challenges and a Google form for the students to enter the lock codes. To access the 3 challenges students will complete a matching activity in Google slides, a quiz in Google forms and a multiple choice quiz in Google sheets. Hints for each of the 3 challenges are located on the Google form where the codes are submitted.
VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE CHECK YOUR DISTRICT'S FILTER. Students will need access to Google Sites to complete the activity. Sometimes a school or district will block Google Sites. I cannot fix any issues like this for you. Before purchasing, please check to ensure you will be able to access Google Sites from a student account. ALL firewall issues that occur are on your end in your school/district restrictions. Firewall restrictions are not due to your device. I cannot troubleshoot. It is your responsibility to ensure the links will work prior to your purchase. -Feedback left for tech issues are solely on the buyer's merit and should not reflect the escape room's functions.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
