An interactive, team-building, critical-thinking activity to get your students moving, thinking, and escaping! Your students get to help Jonas escape to Elsewhere!
This is a cumulative escape room activity to do after finishing the novel. The escape room focuses on elements of the novel including Sameness, Feelings & Dreams rituals, Assignments/Ceremony of Twelve, Memories, Release, Jonas & the Giver's Decision to Escape, and Jonas and Gabriel's actual Escape to Elsewhere.
There are two different ways that you can implement this Escape Room activity in your classroom. The first is with an Escape Room kit, boxes, and locks. This is how I used the activity in my classroom. My students loved it! I purchased a Breakout EDU Kit, but you can also use each worksheet individually and have students fill out the accompanying student answer sheet with their answers. They can work in small groups or as a whole class; you facilitate as you see fit for your students.
Good luck in helping Jonas escape to Elsewhere!
