Product Description
This Escape Room style lesson helps students learn about the Berlin Wall and Cold War division between the East and West as they "Escape From Berlin"!

Students move through 9 stations on different aspects of the Berlin Wall. These stations are:

• Plans for a Wall Around Berlin
• The Building of The Berlin Wall
• The Death Strip
• Checkpoint Charlie
• Berlin Wall Graffiti
• A Convertible Escape
• A Daring Hot Air Balloon Escape
• Escaping with a Stolen Tank
• A Tunnel Into East Berlin

At each station students complete a reading and must answer 4 questions. The answers will help students decipher 4 clues. Students use these clues to simulate a top secret escape from Berlin during the Cold War. In order for them to successfully "Escape Berlin" they must decipher the:

• Location of their escape
• Contact point
• Date and time
• Secret code word to enter

This is a very fun lesson that will help your students better understand the Cold War division of Germany and Berlin Wall.

A great activity to extend this lesson is this Berlin Wall Reading, Worksheet, and Interactive Notebook. Or you can get both resources plus tons more great activities in my Cold War Complete Unit Bundle!
