In “Harlem Renaissance: Time Travel Escape Room” students are in the process of time traveling back in time to study the Harlem Renaissance when their time machine malfunctions! The only way for students to repair the time machine and return to the present is for students to successfully complete six challenges. Challenges can be used to introduce students to or to help students review famous artists, writers, and musicians associated with the Harlem Renaissance:
+ Jacob Lawrence
+ Langston Hughes
+ Louis Armstrong
+ Duke Ellington
+ Bessie Smith
Challenges require students to use critical thinking and inference skills. Challenges include activities such as:
+ decoding famous Louis Armstrong song titles
+ solving puzzles of Jacob Lawrence paintings to reveal hidden codes
+ unscrambling the titles of famous Duke Ellington songs
+ determining the missing words from Bessie Smith lyrics using a video clip
+ decoding a Langston Hughes poem
+ matching the historical figures to what they did to reveal a secret code
This escape room activity is specifically aligned with Virginia SOL USII.6c, but also covers most U.S. History standards associated with the Harlem Renaissance.
Students will have fun exploring the history and culture of the Harlem Renaissance as they solve the challenges and work to return to the present in this escape room activity! Teacher instructions are provided that explain how to set up and implement the activity in your classroom.
